Jordan Morrison, Southmoore boys soccer: Morrison was a key leader for the Sabercats. A four-year team captain, he had seven goals and 12 assists during his first two years. Morrison, who played several positions throughout his time at Southmoore, had his most productive season in 2019, finishing with 10 goals and eight assists. His impressive year helped him earn a spot on The Oklahoman’s All-City second team. Morrison’s impact on the program went beyond his performances on the field. In each season he won the team’s Allegiance Award, which recognizes the ideal teammate. Morrison plans to continue his soccer career at Rose State. “Jordan is a special kid,” Southmoore coach Kit Stephenson said. “His competitive edge is that of a professional. … My favorite thing about this kid is his desire to be the best he can be in everything — soccer, as a friend, as a teammate, a captain.”
