(WFRV) – Green Bay native James Morgan is heading to New York. The former Florida International quarterback was selected by the New York Jets with the No. 125 overall pick in the fourth round. There, Morgan will join quarterback Sam Darnold.

Morgan played for Ashwaubenon high school and becomes the first Green Bay metro area quarterback drafted into the NFL since 1988 (Bud Keyes, Green Bay West).

Last week, Local 5’s Lily Zhao caught up with Morgan about his hopes of getting drafted into the NFL.
