Morgan Clark

The following is taken from the University of Windsor website where Morgan Clark was elected to their Sports Hall of Fame for his many years as an assistant football coach.

Morgan Clark began the intramural football program and coached at Assumption University in 1964. He was an assistant coach for Lancers Football with head coaches Gino Fracas and John Musselman from 1967 to 1996. In 1988, Morgan received the Gino Fracas Award in recognition of his outstanding career service as a volunteer assistant coach.

An accomplished high school football and basketball athlete, Morgan was voted to the All-City Football team. Although he was offered a University of Michigan football scholarship and a football contract with Edmonton Eskimos in grade 12, Morgan studied at University of Western Ontario where he was All-Star Defensive End in his final year. He was a bonus draft choice by the Toronto Argonauts, and went on to play football in the Canadian Football League for three and a half years before injuries forced him to retire.

Morgan then began his 34 year teaching career in Windsor and Essex County. During that time he coached high school and AKO football and officiated basketball for ten years in the Essex County area. He has been a track and field starter for 43 years and continues to be involved at University track meets.

Note:  There is a discrepancy between Clark's biography above which says he played for three and a half years in the CFL, and official records which show only two years.  No game participation stats were kept in the East until 1960 and 1964 in the West.  One source has Clark playing with BC, but he does not show up on their all-time roster.
