For the past three years, Evans High School coaches tried out new players to win the punt returner position. And every time, Connor Morningstar kept his position.
“We tried everybody back there,” said Marty Jackson, Morningstar’s head coach his first three years at Evans. “Every year, a kid would say they could beat him out.”
Because of his toughness, Morningstar will continue playing football at the next level. The Knights standout signed Monday to play with Ferrum College.
