For those who knew Jack Morris, a memorial golf tournament held each spring in his memory is a way to pay tribute and also earn funds for the Payson High School football program he cherished most of his life. During the tournaments, it’s not unusual for some of Jack’s former Longhorn teammates and coaches to take time away from play to take the short walk over to Pioneer Cemetery to lay a memento on his gravesite. Such a show of respect will undoubtedly occur again at the 9th Annual Jack Morris Memorial Golf Tournament when it tees off at 7:30 a.m., Saturday, June 9 with a shotgun start. A good turnout would bode well for the football team, which depends on the proceeds from the tournament to purchase much-needed items that cannot be paid for with the cash-strapped athletic budget.
