On Morgan Wootten

November 06, 2002

Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington, made the following statement today after DeMatha’s legendary high school basketball coach Morgan Wootten announced his retirement:

“Morgan Wootten’s retirement is a big loss to future generations of athletes. He saw and brought out the best in each athlete. More important, however, than his winning record on the court is the example he has set for the young people in this Archdiocese off the court. He has always made it clear God and family come first and I am sure he will continue to share this message in any new challenges he takes on.”
