Arnie Morrison, was a award winning and all-star Canadian football player, playing from 1933 to 1938 with the Ottawa Rough Riders .
Morrison was a multi-sport star athlete, but was involved in a junior football brawl and riot when his Ottawa Rideaus played the St.Thomas Yellow Jackets in 1929. He was served with a lifetime ban from football, but after winning Cummings Trophy for fair play in the Civil Service Hockey League, he was reinstated in 1931. His first season with the Riders was 1933 and he would play in the Grey Cup in 1936, was an all-star in 1937, and was fully vindicated when he won the Jeff Russel Memorial Trophy for skill, sportsmanship, and courage in 1936.
