ET's Lauren Zima caught up with Morgan backstage after her first big win, where she expressed how honored she was to receive yet another major trophy.
"I'm feeling good. I'm still taking it in a little bit, but obviously it's an incredible award," she said. "There has been so many incredible women that I have watched go on that stage and get this award, as I have been to many ESPY Awards before. It's great to now be that woman."
Not being able to contain her excitement, she also shared that she was "feeling proud to have my family in attendance…My family is along for the ride too."
During her acceptance speech, Morgan touched on the importance of helping other female athletes and investing in women.
"I wanted to say that we need to invest in women, and when you invest in women you see the return on it," she explained backstage. "The World Cup was a perfect example of it. Of the fact that, yes we give U.S. soccer an extremely hard time, but you have to give them credit for investing in this team over the course of the last 20 years, and you could see that in the World Cup how dominate we were… I think investing in women sports is so crucial."
"Sorry, but this is probably the second-best trophy we won this week."
