If Doug Morris’ recent past is an indicator, the North White senior may become Butler University’s next great … rugby player. Morris, a three-time All-White County offensive lineman and a cornerstone on the line for North White’s Class A state championship football team, stepped right into wrestling and has maintained an undefeated level of success. The senior also continues to be No. 1 in the classroom, where he leads his class with an 11.2 grade point average on North White’s 12.0 scale. Morris was named as a Herald Journal Sprint United Telephone Community Relations Team Scholar Athlete for the second consecutive year for his accomplishments. Doug is the son of Mary Ann and Eric Morris of Reynolds.
