Milton Denis Morin (October 15, 1942, Leominster, Massachusetts – July 9, 2010, Northampton, Massachusetts) was a professional American football tight end in the National Football League. Morin attended St. Bernard's High School in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, where he held records in track and field as well as being elected co-captain of the football team.[citation needed] After college at the University of Massachusetts, he played for the Cleveland Browns for ten seasons (1966–1975). Drafted round #1 in 1966 NFL Draft, he was voted to the Pro Bowl in 1968 and 1971 . After he made the team, team owner Art Modell called him into his office and asked Morin what salary he would have made if he became a school teacher (Morin's major was education).
