Commit has been around U of A since age 8

Golden Bears add a local recruit to their 2018 class.

Trevor Morris, a receiver from Harry Ainlay High School, has grown up around the University of Alberta Golden Bears, and now he will continue to develop under their stewardship after signing his letter of intent with the team.

“I’ve been around U of A for many years now. I’ve participated in their minor football camps for as long as I can remember. I’ve built good relationships with the coaches here over the years,” Morris said. “I have a lot of respect for all of the coaches at U of A…without their help I definitely wouldn’t be where I am now.”

At the tender age of eight, Morris started attending the Golden Bears’ camps. Fast-forward to grade ten where Morris made a decision that would change the trajectory of his career. After his grade ten season, he injured his shoulder and decided to switch from quarterback to receiver.

“When I started playing receiver I was an undersized, slow kid who couldn’t run fast, catch well, and didn’t understand the position,” said Morris, who is now 6’3, 175lbs. “After working with a lot of people at U of A for a few months, they managed to fix my running form, teach me the position and after just a few months of playing the position, my comfort level went from almost nothing to being very confident with my knowledge and skillset going into my high school camp.”

Morris is also familiar with the coaching style of Coach Sulz, who he said ran the offense for Team Alberta. “It was a really fun system to be apart of. I really enjoy the competitive culture the team has. Everyone is always working. Football really has to be a priority in your life if you want to play at U of A and that’s perfect for me,” he said.

Along with his three years with the Harry Ainlay Titans (MEHSFL), Morris, who is interested in a bachelor of design, spent nine years with the Edmonton Mustangs. He was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. Last season, the Titans went 14-0 and won both the city and provincial championship. He is one of three Titans players to join the Golden Bears with Jonathan Rosery and Ty Duguid also joining the team.
