Morris Trent Phipps

MORRIS TRENT PHIPPS, 61, nose guard with Baylor, 1965-70, died on 10/9/09 after suffering from serious depression, Early Onset Alzheimer’s disease, and at death was found to have CTE, the effects of which began to show in 1997.  The coaches thought he was too small but his tenacity, quickness, and strength always earned him his starting position.  The first in his family ever to attend and graduate from college, Phipps was married with 2 sons and worked as a teacher, coach and principal.  Trent’s family misses him greatly and wants people to know the devastation of this disease and asks you to support, in whatever fashion, the research that may some day prevent others from suffering the effects of CTE.–“Morris Trent Phipps Legacy Donor Page”, Sports Legacy Institute.  Memorial by his wife Donna and sons Brett and Garrett.
