Morrow bypassed athletic scholarship offers from some of the best fencing programs in the nation to come to WVU, where he would experience many “firsts.” He was one of the first African-American students to major in Civil Engineering at WVU and the second be selected for the Air Force Advanced ROTC Program. He competed on the WVU Fencing Club Team as the first African-American athlete to fence for WVU.  He anchored the team to four undefeated seasons. He had to be driven to and from a “Colored” facility to dress and shower before and after his first away meet because the host venue was segregated. Morrow continued his athletic career after graduating from WVU, subsequently qualifying for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials. He won the U.S. Mid-Atlantic Championship in 1984 and was a two-time U.S. National Champion (Veterans Age). Morrow was a member of the 1996 U.S. International (World) Championship Team (Veterans Age) and earned a bronze medal at the 1996 International (World) Championships (Veterans Age) in Kassel Germany. Professionally, Morrow experienced more “firsts,” as the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s first African-American State Design Engineer for the State of West Virginia and as WVU’s first African-American athletics department’s head coach (varsity or club sports) in 1976.
