Lincoln-Way Central fullback Mike Morgan might want to wish for rain every time he steps on the football field.

On a night when at times, heavy rains rendered the natural playing surface at Waubonsie Valley a mire, Morgan looked right at home rushing for a career-high 149 yards and two touchdowns. While smaller, faster, more agile players slipped and slid through the muck, the 6-3, 210-pound senior’s power running style was well-suited to the swampy conditions.
