Team Morris started this spring when three members of the 2014 Brier Champions joined forces with Olympic Gold Medallist John Morris to become the team that will carry the Canadian flag into the 2015 Brier at the Saddledome in Calgary.
Last year saw Johnny Mo return to calling the game for Jim Cotter’s BC rink after seven years of throwing third stones for Kevin Martin on arguably the most successful team in history. Last year with Cotter, John helped lead his team to the finals of both the Olympic Trials and the Brier. This year will see John complete the transition back to full skipping duties as he will be calling the game and throwing last rocks.
Pat, Carter and Nolan have been together for the past three seasons (Nolan and Carter the past eight). The last three years have been very successful seeing us win two Grand Slam titles, one TSN Skins Game, lead the World Curling Tour in money earnings during the 2012-2013 season, and most importantly winning the 2014 Brier. After a hard fought World Championships where they finished fourth, there is one piece unfinished business there for these three.
