Get to know Rich Morrow.
Meet our newest Grunge Boy, Rich Morrow. He is handsome, energetic, and will beat almost anybody in a game of one-on-one. From the basketball courts to modeling, Mr. Morrow has persevered and never let the word ‘no’ stand in his way. The Cleveland, Ohio-native athlete was an instint hit on Vine and quickly realized that basketball wasn’t his only talent. He was raised by his mother and gives her credit for making him the man he is today. He is intelligent, kind, funny, and a true gentleman. Currently, Mr. Morrow is featured alongside Serena Williams in a new Nike commercial where he’s showing off his basketball moves.
Congratulations on having a national Nike commercial! What was it like shooting with Nike and other elite athletes?
It was amazing! I have always loved Nike so, now, to be featured in one of their commercials—it’s a bit surreal. [It was] very high energy and I was surrounded by good people. We shot in Los Angeles for about 13 hours. It was a lot of fun!
What would you tell a potential girlfriend about dating a model?
Dating a model like me, is probably a lot like hell. It takes a lot of a self-confidence and patience, because every day is different.
How can we find you on social media?
Here are my Instagram and Twitter pages.
What’s next for Rich Morrow?
Acting. I am currently writing a show about my life. I want to provide more content and tell [more] stories like mine. I love modeling, but acting is my passion. So I am constantly writing and taking classes; learning to perfect my craft.
(1) NBA or NFL?
(2) Biggie or Tupac?
(3) LeBron or Jordan?
I’d probably have to say LeBron—solely because I’m an Ohio boy like him. I have been so close to his career, all my life. But [Michael] Jordan is still the G.O.A.T.
(4) LA or NY?
Los Angeles. New York gives me anxiety.
(5) Pool or Beach?
