Legacy of Excellence

Among the hundreds of St. Michael's athletics program alumni are a number of men and women who have distinguished themselves in their chosen sport.

Mitch Morse, '10

Currently a center for the NFL's Buffalo Bills, Mitch Morse proudly represents the class of 2010 at St. Michael's. During his time in athletics at St. Michael's, he participated in football, basketball and track and field.

As a freshman playing football for the Crusaders, he trained for the quarterback position, but after a summer growth spurt quickly moved to the offensive line and defensive tackle for his remaining three years. His honors while playing football for the Crusaders included First-Team All-State and consecutive First-Team All-District and Academic All-State honors. At a ceremony in the spring of 2015, Mitch's #75 jersey was retired and still hangs on display in the Carter Athletic Center.

Mitch was recruited to play football for several colleges and universities including TCU, Kansas, Stanford and Vanderbilt but ultimately landed on the University of Missouri where he would play until being drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round, 49th overall, in the 2015 NFL Draft.

On March 13, 2019, Morse signed a four-year $44.5 million contract with the Buffalo Bills, making him the highest-paid center in the league at the time. Mitch did not only spend his time at St. Michael's playing sports.

He still recounts fond memories of his time spent in the drama club and represents what all students here enjoy - the choice to find themselves among many different opportunities offered.

"I was a completely different kid getting into St. Mike's. I was shy, timid, and St. Mike's gave me the opportunity to grow as a person, not only in my faith, but socially and athletically."

Jameson Houston, '15

Jameson Houston, a recent addition to the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars roster, is a proud member of the class of 2015 at St. Michael's. While in high school, Jameson played football, basketball and track and field. In football, Jameson was a two-year TAPPS All-State player and three-year All-District player both on defense and offense as a defensive back, wide receiver, running back and kick returner. With many notable news outlets picking up on his talent, including ESPN, Dave Campbell's Texas Football and the Austin American Statesman, Jameson went on to play for Baylor University where he earned Big 12 Conference honors as a defensive back.

In 2021, Jameson was picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars as a cornerback.

Jameson also excelled at track and field while at St. Michael's, winning multiple TAPPS state titles and breaking records in the 200-meter dash and 800m and 1600m relays. He has fond memories of his coaches in high school who helped guide him on and off the field.

“It was a great experience representing St. Michael’s on the football field and winning state championships on the track. I also have great memories of the teachers, coaches and parents who made an impact on me at St. Michael's.”
