Career Highlights

  • Played 61 games with the Toronto Argonauts.

Allan (Teddy) Morris began his football career with the Toronto playground teams and then with the Native Sons junior team in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Upon returning to Toronto, Morris earned a spot on the Toronto Argonauts junior squad and quickly graduated to the senior team.
Morris, a rugged, alert player, starred for the Argonauts for nine seasons and during that time played on three Grey Cup teams.

After his playing career ended, Morris coached in Toronto from 1940 until 1949, leading the Argonauts to three consecutive Grey Cup victories.

Morris passed away in 1965, and to honour his memory the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) named the championship trophy that is presented to the champion of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC), the Teddy Morris Memorial Trophy. The Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) has also the Teddy Morris Memorial Trophy to honour the best player in the Vanier Cup Championship game.

Allen (Teddy) Morris is also a member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame and is an All-Time Argonaut.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 1964 as a player.
