On the afternoon of Sept. 1, I received a phone call from Jim Maready and he told me that we lost Allan Morris to a fatal heart attack. I couldn’t believe what he said and made him tell me again. Those words just knocked the wind right out of me.
Coming back to Crescent City to coach has been a great experience for me. One of the reasons that this has been such a great experience is the privilege I had working with Allan.
I first met Allan when he was coaching youth football. He had an easy way about him where you could tell he was in charge and knew what he was doing, but never raised his voice to yell at players when they made a mistake. He made corrections in a very positive way.
