Coach Talk

“He loves the game of football and he’s a kid that’s always going to be at practice. He’s very instinctive, a great defender and tackler. He’s everything you want in a high school prospect. He’s rangy at 6-foot-2 and he’s willing to do the dirty work. I believe his recruitment is just beginning and schools will take notice this season.”   — Woodland Hills head coach Brian Tarrant


Moore plays on both sides of the ball, but is looked at primarily for his defensive skillset at linebacker. He manages the field well with great vision. Some of his best work comes at stopping the run. He possesses speed and strength for a well-rounded linebacker that is only expected to get better during his upcoming junior season.
