Moore Wants Another State Championship

Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) has become the national record holder for TD receptions. He will be looking to lead his teammates one step closer to another state championship on Saturday. He spoke to about his unbelievable career at Prosser and offered his thoughts on Gino Simone's interest in Boise State.

Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) is now the national record holder for TD receptions. "I didn't really think about the TD record," he said. "It just kind of happened. I just want to thank everyone from our coaches to the team. They all helped."

Moore and his teammates are currently making yet another state championship run. They are the defending Class 2A champions and hoping for a repeat. "We beat Othello 33-28," he said. "We struggled. We did get the win and that's all that matters." The Mustang defense had a bit of trouble containing the Othello option offense. "We weren't ready to go and they ran on us a bit," he said.

The game this week features a rematch from the 2007 state championship game. "We play Burlington-Edison this week," he said. "I think they are 11-1." Prosser was clearly the better team last season. "We won 42-7 last season," he said. "We'll have to be ready to go this week," he added. The winner of this game will head to the Tacoma Dome for the final rounds of the state playoffs.

The Broncos were able to get a big win last week against Nevada in perhaps their toughest road game of the season. "My mom was watching the game on a laptop in the press box at my game," he said. "It was a tough game. Kellen said he was a little sore and he wasn't happy about those three picks," he added.

Kirby's big game against Burlington-Edison on Saturday will keep him from attending the Fresno State game in Boise. "My parents are going to Boise for Thanksgiving to see Kellen," he said. "I have to stay home since I have a walk through on Friday. My parents will be at the game," he added.

The Broncos have recently jumped back into the picture with WR Gino Simone. "Me and Gino are pretty good buddies," he said. "He called me last night and texted me a few times. We're going to be down there on the same weekend for our official visit."

What does Gino bring to the offense? "Gino can do a lot with the ball after the catch," he said. "He's shifty. We'd benefit from playing together," Moore added.

Kirby's vision of what it means to be a Bronco is very similar to the other current Boise State commitments. "For me, it's the blue collar mentality," he said. "I'm not the fastest or strongest guy out there. I just want to do my job and be a part of something special."

Can Kirby Moore lead Prosser to another state championship? Will Gino Simone be a Bronco? It'll be interesting to see exactly what happens in the coming weeks. will continue to have updates on Kirby Moore throughout his senior season.
