ALLAN MORGAN Kingston College captainTuesday, September 17, 2013
When did you start playing football?
I started playing competitively for Portmore Missionary from about eight years old, but before that I used to play a lot of football on the road from as far back as I can remember.
Which team did you play against in your first Manning Cup match?
That was Hydel High, I think in 2010.
Who is your local and international football idol?
Locally it would be Jermaine Hue, and internationally, it is Andres Iniesta.
How do you rate your school's chances in this year's competition?
This year I think we have a really good chance, and it is our best chance in the last couple years.
Which school do you fear the most and why?
I fear no team, but there are teams that I have respect for. Jamaica College, title-holders St George's College, and Wolmer's Boys' because they have been doing really well over the past couple years and they are really confident. When you are playing a team that is so confident it is not easy to break them.
How important is it for a student/athlete to have a solid education?
I think it is paramount because it aids in furthering your goals if you want to become a professional athlete. It helps you to make more sensible decisions in terms of proper dieting decisions and so on.
What are your educational achievements to date?
Currently in upper sixth form. Nine CSEC subjects and seven CAPE subjects.
What is your ultimate life ambition?
I want to one day be compared to some of the best footballers out there.
Who has had the biggest impact on your life thus far?
My father (Oneil Morgan) is always in my corner and encouraging me and makes sure that he shares his wisdom with me and that's invaluable.
My mother (Shelly-Ann Morgan) is always driving me and pushing me, and ensures I get what I want.
