Guelph football player suspended for positive drug test

January 6, 2014

Mackenzie Morrison, a rookie receiver with the Guelph Gryphons football team, has been suspended for two years by Canadian Interuniversity Sport for testing positive for a prohibited substance.

The athlete’s urine sample, collected during an out-of-competition test on Sept. 24, revealed the presence of tamoxifen (an estrogen receptor modulator), the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport disclosed.

Morrison, from Acton, Ont., via Georgetown District High School, is in his second year at Guelph. He played in one game this year, but did not dress for either game against Queen’s.

Morrison waived his right to a hearing and accepted a two-year sanction ending Dec. 5, 2015. He is ineligible to participate in any capacity — including training with teammates — in any sport governed by the Canadian Anti-Doping Program.
