Cave City player highlighted in Super Bowl interview

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

Thamail Morgan
Cave City's Thamail Morgan will be featured in an interview with CBS to air during the Super Bowl Feb. 7.

Cave City Coach Jamie King said the mini documentary will air between 2 and 3 p.m. He said they will not know the exact time until late Thursday after scheduling is completed. King said the segment will be 10-15 minutes in length.

Morgan was the student who decided to forego a touchdown in a football game in the fall against Yellville-Summitt high school. The event was in honor of Yellville-Summitt player Kymball Duffy who lost his life in a vehicle accident weeks earlier.

Morgan's act of compassion elicited national media attention and brought Cave City to the spotlight in regard to the good sportsmanship.

The special feature was composed to tell America about the Kymball Duffy story as well as Morgan's act of kindness.

This is what good sportsmanship is all about. Thamail Morgan is truly an admiral young man. Others should follow this example. Thank you Thamail.

Kymball Duffy is sadly missed and loved by all who knew him.

God Bless you Both!
