If one looked inside the heart and soul of Kevin Morris, one would likely find a few basketballs, perhaps a clipboard and the pounding of a coach who knows there are more important parts to his profession than drawing up a play to run coming out of a timeout.
It’s all about being a coach and the veteran Apalachee High School boys basketball mentor has seen a great deal in his time with the Wildcats. Two Final Four appearances, some thrilling wins, some disappointing losses and some of life’s toughest lessons are part of what Morris deals with on a daily basis.
Morris has provided stability at AHS and through the natural ups and down, has become a constant in front of the Wildcat bench. An emotional leader to say the least, the term “leader” describes Morris, but in some ways only scratches the surface.
