NFL Athlete Shows Soft Spot for His 1991 Mazda

Upon hearing that an NFL player drives a Mazda vehicle one would assume it's got to be a shiny new MX-5 Miata or maybe even a turbocharged, tricked out MAZDASPEED3. However, that is not exactly the case. Alfred Morris, starting running back for the Washington Redskins and rising professional football star, rolls into the stadium in a 1991 Mazda 626 sedan.

Anyone out there a little shocked? Twin City Mazda certainly was. While we certainly have a bias towards Mazda autos, even we were a bit surprised to find that the talented athlete isn't cruising around in something a bit more, er, modern.

But Alfred Morris doesn't mind the fact that his ride touts the cloth seats, power steering, and tape deck of auto years past. For him, it's all about the sentiment his beloved Mazda vehicle carries with it.

Morris explains, "It has some sentimental value to it now. It just keeps me grounded, where I came from and all the hard work for me to get to this point. So that's what helps me."1

In the end, Twin City Mazda is encouraged to see that fame and a bit of fortune isn't turning this NFL player away from his treasured auto. What's more, the fact that his 1991 Mazda is still up and running better than ever, just goes to show the level of quality with which each Mazda vehicle is made.
