Andrew Leutwiler, a Clarkson University freshman from Skokie, Ill., has been named the 1999-2000 Mike Morrison Memorial Scholar. Leutwiler, a business major and son of Barbara and Charles Leutwiler of Skokie, is the seventh recipient of the esteemed scholarship, named for the late Clarkson hockey star Mike Morrison.
Morrison, the Bellingham, Mass., hockey forward, entered Clarkson in September 1985 as a "walk-on" (non-scholarship) hockey player and went on to star for and captain the Clarkson University Golden Knight varsity hockey team during his senior year (1988-89).
Like Morrison, Leutwiler was a walk-on when he came to Clarkson last season. In his freshman year as a Golden Knight he saw action in 28 games, racking up three assists. His pesky and aggressive style of play contributed to the team's success as the Knights won the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) regular season and post-season titles and made their ninth NCAA tournament appearance in 10 years.
Before Clarkson, Leutwiler played for the Billings (Mont.) Bulls in the American Frontier Hockey League, where he was a three-time all-star and was named the most valuable player of the 1996-97 playoffs.
Clarkson University is an independent institution located in northern New York, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. The University has 2,749 graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in programs in its schools of Business, Engineering, Liberal Arts, and Science, and its Interdisciplinary Engineering and Management program.
