Head Coach A. B. Morris
Colleges sometimes find it hard to find athletic coaches that fit in with the ideals of the
institution. This is not true, however, in the case of Coach Morris, who is both a Christian gentleman
and a coach that can hold his own with any T. I. A. A. mentor. Although he is the youngest
coach in the Association, he has been able to develop teams that compare favorably with others
in the state.
Morris received his training under D. X. Bible at the Texas A. & M. Four years at quarterback
on the Aggie eleven, during which time A. & M. won the Southern Championship by
defeating Centre College, gave him his knowledge of the grid game. As a member of the Aggie
baseball nine, playing at short, he captained the team one year, led the Southwestern Conference
in hitting and earned runs scored for two years and was All-Southwestern choice for the infield.
His coaching experience before coming here was limited to one year at Greenville High School,
but he soon demonstrated that he was a coach of college calibre.
Here’s what’s next.
