1984 national champion wrestler Doug Morse '84 was inducted into the New York State Collegiate Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame in January during the state collegiate championships in Buffalo.
Morse had one of the most outstanding careers in school history. He was a three-time NCAA Division III All-American, winning the 190-pound national championship in 1984, and finishing second in 1982 and third in 1983.
Morse was also a three-time SUNYAC champion, in 1982, 1983 and 1984; a three-time finalist at the New York State Championships including a state meet victory in 1982; and two-time champion at the RIT Invitational. He compiled a career record of 106-24-1.
The New York State Collegiate Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame was founded in 1977. Of the 74 members of the Hall of Fame, including this year's induction class, just 24 have been inducted solely based on their competitive wrestling careers, making Morse's achievements on the mat even more noteworthy. Morse is the third Oswego State Laker to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, joining two former head coaches: Jim Howard, who was inducted in 1980, and Dave See who was inducted in 1986.
Morse was a charter inductee into the Oswego State Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001. He is originally from Elmira and currently resides in Adams where he operates a family business with wife Mary and children Doug Jr., Brooke, Cody and Paula.
