MORRISON
Continued from Page 18
example of Morrison stepping up when it count-
ed most. Even more impressive, Morrison scored
the goal after taking what amounted to a physi-
cal beating from the Terriers throughout the
game.
"He was getting knocked over all over the
place," Michigan assistant coach Mel Pearson
said. "But the kid kept on coming back. Without
question he was our best player."
To this day, Hobey Baker is offered as a strik-
ing example of the finest thatAmerica has pro-
duced.
Behind the record-setting numbers and clutch
performances is an approach towards life
matched by few.
"When I first saw him, he was a scrawny kid,"
said Michigan coach Red Berenson of the now 5-
foot-11, 182 pound Morrison. "I had no idea that
he was going to be the player he has become. He
had something special in him that made him
want to be better than the average player."
Pearson added, "He's not the biggest guy, he's
not the fastest guy, but day in and day out he
works hard."
Believe it or not, Morrison has had a bad game
every now and then. But what's elevated him to
the top of the college hockey world is his ability
to bounce back from adversity.
"Brendan, he's a different person," said
Madden. "He can have a bad game, it very rarely
happens, and the next game he comes back with
four points. Nothing gets to him."'
Pearson, in his ninth year, credits Morrison's
upbringing as one reason for the success of what
Pearson considers "his best player in nine years."
"I think he's been brought up very well by his
folks," Pearson said. "He's learned you always
bounce back.
"He doesn't have an ego. A lot of athletes this
day and age have a huge ego, even at the college
level. But Brendan's a very down-to-earth guy.
And that's what keeps him on an even keel."
It's clear that Morrison's mom, Debbie, has
helped her son keep life in perspective.
"The character as a human being - that's
more to me than all the points he could get,"
Debbie said.
In spite of all the well-deserved praise heaped
upon Hobey Baker, he was unspoiled by it and
he was modest almost to a fault.
Through all the fame and glory, Morrison has
shown seemingly endless appreciation for oth-
ers.
No matter the importance of the game, the
magnitude of his feats, or the prestige of the
award, Morrison credited his teammates with
allowing him to succeed. During his Hobey
Baker acceptance speech, Morrison went one
step further when he thanked the training staff
for their work.
"It's the little things that happen behind the
scenes that truly make a team run," he said.
'had no Idea that

"This is for all thosee
Wolverines that got to
the final four. Those

Later, Morrison interrupted the ceremony to
express a little more gratitude. He explained that
he was nervous and had forgotten to thank the
fans.
Even in the moments immediately after the
Wolverines won the national championship last
year, Morrison took time to recognize more th
just his team's accomplishment.
"This is for all those Wolverines that got to the
final four," he said. "Those were great teams. We
did it for you guys."
Whatever game Hobey Baker played he
always played it first of all for the joy of the
sport
The ultimate team player, Morrison proved his
dedication to Michigan last summer. The 19*
second-round draft pick of the New Jersey
Devils decided to stay at Michigan for his final
season.
The eight other seniors followed suit. as
Morrison was poised to lead the Wolverines in
their quest for another national championship.
"Everybody follows what he does," Madden
said.
Morrison's decision to return also won praise
from former Wolverine Al Renfrew.
"The thing that's made (Morrison) so great
the fact that he's stayed here for four years," sa
Renfrew, who helped the 1947-48 Wolverines
win the first-ever NCAA hockey championship.
"He conducts himself with a great deal of
Michigan tradition."
Page after page was written about him in the
newspapers. Crowds in evening dress would
arrive by carriage or limousines when the mar-
quee read "Hobey Baker Plays Tonight."
Yet Hobey remained unaffected.0
With Morrison's return came pressure.
Anything less than becoming the first team to
win back-to-back national championships since
Boston in 1971-72 would be considered a disap-
pointment. On a more personal level, Morrison
faced the added pressure of being the preseason
favorite to win the Hobey Baker.
The Wolverines' captain handled the pressure
with the same grace that he has displayed since
arriving in Ann Arbor.
Every team keyed on him. And the abuse ,4
suffered from opponents took its toll early in the
season, lowering his goal production. But, natu-
rally, he bounced back, and put together his best
season as a Wolverine, with 31 goals and 57
assists.
"He's had so much pressure on him over the
last year," Botterill said. "He's lived up to all
those expectations. He's been a real leader."
Less than a day after Michigan's season came
to an abrupt end, Friday's Hobey Baker cerem
ny provided a chance for Morrison to help ea
the Wolverines' pain, this time by sharing the
honor of honors.
"Although this is an individual award, it's not
possible at all without the teammates, the coach-
ing staff and the whole University of Michigan,"
Morrison said.
And again, Legg was in awe.
"He's just so involved with this team, it's
incredible. He's everybody's best friend on and
off the ice.
"He's my role model, I want to be like M."
