Fox 40 Prospect Challenge (West Coast): Size, speed, and skill set have served DE Morgan well

For this future CFC100 defensive end, Mitchell Morgan is eager to gain more experience from the coaches and compare his skills with the other players participating in the CFCFPC.

To date, he says his football experience has been “excellent”. “I have enjoyed playing in a variety of positions. My size, speed and skill set have served me well. Great Team experience!” He goes on to say that the physical contact and being close to his teammates are what make him love football even more. 

His size, speed, and skill are what Morgan relates to when he says that defensive end, J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans, is someone he models his playing style after. “His off field persona appears fun and friendly and doesn’t take himself too seriously but obviously he puts in the hard work to be a super star on the field,” he adds. 

While only playing for one year, Morgan won the 2016 MVP award with the Kelowna Owls, was a first team All-star, and participated on Team BC. Amazing accolades after only one year. But it isn’t only football that he participates in. Other sports and activities have contributed to his development as an athlete.

He was a TOFC striker (10 years in Soccer), a Provincial soccer prospect for 2 years, plays basketball, does Track and Field – all disciplines, practices MMA Toshido, and played lacrosse for two 2 years.

I train with my brother who is 19 years old and currently on a UFV Soccer Scholarship. We do cardio, footwork and speed training. I also have a weight training program that I do 5-6 days a week,” he says. “I enjoy playing basketball, tennis, snowboarding, dirt biking, swimming and various other outdoor activities in Kelowna.”

Football is added to that long list of sports and activities, however, this athlete is one to watch as he already is turning heads after only one year of playing.
