A member of the initial Golden Horseshoe All Star team, Mackenzie Morrison played wide receiver in the 2011 game versus the GTA All Stars. The 6′ 170lb Morrison also played receiver and returned kicks for the OVFL’s Brampton Bulldogs in 2011. Prior to 2011 Morrison played in the OVFL with the Halton Hills Crimson Tide. During his three years with the Crimson Tide he first was the Defensive MVP, then the team MVP, to be followed by a season as the Offensive MVP.
Morrison attends Acton District HS which does not field a football team. So he has suited up for neighbouring Georgetown District HS which competes in Halton’s Tier 2 league. Morrison has primarily been a running back at GDHS and with the Crimson Tide. In an injury shortened 2011 season he scored 6 touchdowns in 3 games. That included two special teams TDs versus Tier 1 opponent MM Robinson, one a 100 yd kick return. He had two other TDs called back in 2011. Morrison was a team captain and a very dedicated leader who continued to show up at practices every day while he was injured and helped coach younger players.
Morrsion was coached by former Gryphon Andrew Buckles at Georgetown. He credits Buckles with being a big influence on his choice to play at Guelph. Buckles believes his speed and explosiveness will make Morrison an excellent slot or wideout at the next level.
UPDATE: Just watched this recently posted video. It certainly validates his “speed and explosiveness”. Morrison also shows great vision and looks more elusive than I expected. These highlights come from the two regular season games he played in 2011.
