Connor was the eldest son of Astrid ‘82 and Mike Morrison and the older brother of Alec Morrison ‘14. He was an outstanding student, played the upright bass in the Casady orchestra and played football, baseball, and basketball. He was the starting center and long snapper at Casady for three years. He then was invited to walk on at Vanderbilt University as a long snapper, and proudly played with the team during their three most prolific years in which they attended three straight bowl games. After graduating from Vanderbilt in 2015 with a degree in Biomedical Engineering, he was admitted into the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and completed his first year in the top 25% of his class.
Connor passed away unexpectedly on July 6, 2016 at just 23 years old from sudden cardiac death. He was without symptoms until 15 minutes before his death. He had been extremely healthy throughout his short life and had no family history of heart disease. He continued to work out and play sports after college at the intensity of an athlete on a regular basis, even on the day he passed. Connor’s autopsy revealed that he had left ventricular hypertrophy or an enlarged heart. This could have been detected if he had had an echocardiogram as part of his pre-participation evaluation for high school and college football.
