For over 20 years, Mr. Richmond was a leader in the development and delivery of the National Coaches

Dr. Allan Morris Award: The Dr. Allan Morris Award is presented to recognize the outstanding

the Board from 2007 until his passing. Dr. Morris had a profound impact on the game not only within
the OHF but throughout the country.
