Alvin Roy "Allie" Morrison was an American wrestler who won the freestyle featherweight competition at the 1928 Summer Olympics. Morrison was the only American wrestler to capture a gold medal at those Games. Morrison also won three successive United States AAU, National Wrestling Championships, and had an almost perfect career record with merely one contest loss. He was forced to retire in 1929 due to broken vertebra and later coached wrestling and football.
