Connor and Mo started off as rivals when Connor joined the Degrassi football team. Though Connor made attempts to fit in with his teammates, Mo bullied him relentlessly. When Connor decided to retaliate by playing an elaborate prank on Mo, he discovered that Mo was deeply insecure himself. The two eventually made amends with each other, and worked together to win a crucial game for the team. They have both since gained each other's respect, as well as the respect of their teammates.
Season 11In Not Ready To Make Nice (1), Connor decides to join the football team, one of the reasons being to help himself learn how to socialize with his peers. He has no trouble doing the football drills, beating out Mo for the starting nose tackle position. However, he still doesn’t know how to fit in yet: he doesn’t understand a joke Drew and Owen make, and then when he over laughs at Mo’s joke (because he thought that’s what he’s supposed to do), he insults Mo. He also unintentionally insults Mo’s weight. Mo’s only on the team to pick up girls, so he has no problems being rude to Connor. Connor decides to play a joke on Mo by creating a fake Facerange profile and luring Mo into a date with a “hot girl” at The Dot.
In Not Ready To Make Nice (2), Mo skips the football game to meet the girl, but shows up near the end of the game disappointed because he was stood up. Connor admits that it was a prank, and tells Mo they should be friends because they’re both wanting to be accepted. They both go into the game on the final play, and knowing the only way they can change the way their teammates see them is to win the game, they decide to pretend like they’re arguing to throw off the offense. It works: Connor causes the QB to fumble the ball, and Mo grabs the ball and scores the game-winning touchdown.
In Bitter Sweet Symphony (2), they are both at a Student Council meeting with Jenna, Fiona, Marisol, Becky, Alli, and discussing Campbell's suicide.
