Everett Morgan

The Strength Training Center is named after the late Everett Morgan, a 1937 graduate of Kansas Wesleyan University, who was inducted into the university’s Athletic Hall of Fame for his achievements in football.

After his senior year in 1936, he was named honorable mention Little All-American, first-team All-KCAC and first-team All-Kansas.
