Morton fufills kicking dream

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email


Westover kicker Peter Morton says he has dreamed of kicking in college all during his high school days.

Morton realized his dream Tuesday when he signed the paperwork to play at Concordia College a division three school in Wisconsin.

Morton transferred to Westover from Sherwood Christian for his senior year.

He was a first team all-region selection at punter and he was honorable mention as placekicker.

With the Patriots receiving corps decimated by injury, Peter Morton also played receiver and led the team in catches.

It is kicking that is Morton's first love and he is ready to do just that in cold Wisconsin.

Peter Morton said "It is something I will have to adjust to but I want to be in the cold. So, I don't think it will be that hard for me to adjust."

Morton will punt this fall for Concodia and will handle all kicking duties in two years.
