Paul Morrell is one of the best football coaches in the state of Connecticut.
When I had the good fortune to be named the head coach of the Connecticut All-Star team in 2018, I hired Paul to be our offensive coordinator. He was organized and great at getting our players to come together quickly so we could be successful.
I've competed against him on a few occasions and can say that his teams are prepared, he always had a new wrinkle we needed to defend, and his teams played hard. Paul is knowledgeable, intense, and has a great teaching style.
Paul Morrell is one of the best and brightest football minds around. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on the last few CHSCA Football All Star teams. I got to see on a daily basis how he interacts with everyone, not just his position kids or in his role as a coordinator. First and foremost, he is a teacher of more than just the game of football. He’s always been eager and accommodating for those of us who want to meet and talk football. Coach Morrell is one of my “Go To” guys. I’ll always jump at the chance to work with him.
Coach Morrell is one of the brightest football minds I have ever been around; his attention to detail and ability to have his players prepared is something that I have always admired. Coach has many great qualities but what stands out most is his love of the game and his passion to make the kids who he coaches better players and better men. You'll be hard pressed to find a coach that has done more for his current and former players than Paul Morrell. I have known coach for over 10 years and in that time not only is he a great colleague in the coaching profession but also a great friend and mentor.
I've had the privilege of knowing Paul for 20 years. He was my offensive coordinator in Cromwell when we started our varsity program.He's one of the hardest working coaches that I have come across. His knowledge of the game of football is tremendous. What stood out was his knowledge of the details of every position. From quarterback play to offensive line play, to running backs and receivers. He has the great ability to teach all offensive of positions and not just a focus on one. His ability to connect and relate to young players is second to none. He has the capability to communicate with young people and has the clarity to explain exactly what needs to be executed. I can honestly say I am a better coach for spending years working with Coach Paul Morrell
With a rise in the number of kids from youth leagues to high school teams putting on the pads, area coaches are not able to spend as much time during practices as they’d like to thoroughly work on the skills and fundamentals for all players.
