Craig Morrison, inducted into the Reno High Athletic Hall of Fame

Craig HOFJohnCraig

This is not a post about the greatness of youth, athletics, the molding of young minds, the bonding for life that team sports accomplish, a litany of anecdotes about locker-room horseplay, favored teachers, coaches, but simply a post about a friend of mine; actually two, no actually three friends: Marilynn Burkham (Ma) Bell who proposed Craig to the Reno High Athletic Hall of Fame, to John Doyle, Craig’s (and Ma Bell’s and my) classmate, who is indeed the spokesperson and voice of the Class of ’59, and Craig Morrison, three-sport letterman at RHS who went on to lead the Arizona Wildcats (baseball). John, followed by Craig, gave the superior speeches, introduction by John and acceptance by Craig, that were heard last Saturday night at the Eldorado, and that includes six great speeches by the other nominees. I was damn proud of them.
