Nick Morrison was
named head coach for Schreiner Women's Soccer on
December 7, 2012. Coach Morrison returns
to Schreiner after serving as Assistant Women's
Soccer Coach and Assistant Athletic Academic
Coordinator at Prairie View A&M (NCAA Division
I) for the past four seasons. Working for
and with another former Schreiner soccer player,
Abe Garcia, Morrison helped build the PVAMU
soccer team from one of the worst in all of D-I
sports to a team that won its division in 2012.
Along the way, the program has annually set
school records and have steadily progressed up
to the top of the SWAC western division for the
first time ever. Morrison also serves as
the program's Goalkeeping Coach.
Academically, under Morrison's guidance, the
Panthers have had outstanding success in the
classroom as well.
Morrison was a standout performer both between
the goal pipes and with the books at Schreiner.
As a freshmen (2005), he set the school record
for most shutouts in a season (7.0) and anchored
the best defensive unit in SU history (0.95 GAA).
He was named first team All-ASC after his first
season. In 2006, Morrison had four more
shutouts as Schreiner men's soccer completed
it's most successful two-year run in school
history. That 2006 squad was the first and
only SU team to host an American Southwest
Conference championship tournament. He
again was named First Team All-ASC.
Unfortunately, a lingering illness cost him most
of his junior year and misfortune continued his
final season. He reinjured his knee (he
had two knee surgeries in high school) very
early in his senior year and saw his career come
to a premature end. Still, in just over
two seasons, his 12 shutouts rank #2 in school
history. He was also a three-time Academic
All-ASC selection and graduated in May of 2009
with a degree in Exercise Science.
Coach Morrison also continued his academic
pursuits while working at Prairie View A&M.
He earned his Master's of Education degree in
Health & Human Performance in May of 2011.
Known as a strong recruiter and student of the
game, Morrison will draw on both his recruiting
and coaching skills as he builds a new era of
Schreiner Women's Soccer.
