Moore Finishes Historic High School Career

Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) wrapped up an unbelievable HS career as he broke numerous state and national records. Moore and his teammates finished the season with a heartbreaking loss to Lynden in the state finals. He spoke to about his record breaking career at Prosser, his future as a Bronco, and the return of Titus Young in 2009.

Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) wrapped up an historic HS career and he was rewarded by being named to the Seattle Times All-State Team and the 2A Player of the Year. "It's a great honor and a total team effort," he said. "A great accomplishment. Everyone helped out," he added.

The previous national record for TD receptions was 83. Moore shattered that record by finishing his HS career with 95 TD receptions. This season, he had 131 receptions for 2,126 yards and 34 TDs. "I have learned so much over the years with route running and seeing defenses," he said. "It seemed much more slowed down."

The Mustangs saw their undefeated season come to an end in heartbreaking fashion. Lynden edged out Prosser by a score of 35-34 after a failed two point conversion by the Mustangs. "We had a lot of shots," he said. "A lot of things went their way. We all wanted to go for two. No one second guessed it." The game seemed to be in control for Prosser in the fourth quarter. "We were up 21-6," he said. "They got the onside kick and we couldn't seal the deal."

Moore can now look ahead to playing on The Blue in Boise. "I'm going to try to get to Boise as quick as possible in June," he said. "Throw a lot with the guys. Throw with Kellen," he added.

The Broncos finished the season with a disappointing loss to TCU in the Poinsettia Bowl. Boise State proved the doubters wrong this season with a WAC Championship as many thought this year would be a rebuilding year. "We have a lot of guys coming back next season," he said. "The 2009 season should be a successful one."

One moment in particular stood out to Moore this season. "I would say the win at Oregon," he said. "That was the first win against a Pac-10 team on the road. It was a huge win for the program. They jumped all over them and quieted the crowd."

The Broncos will host the Ducks in a game that could be the best match-up of week one. "I'm already getting motivated," he said. "It will be great to play Oregon at home in the first game."

Bronco fans have recently learned that WR Titus Young will return for the 2009 season. "I think he'll be a great use for the offense," he said. "They need a deep guy. He'll be a great asset to the offense," Moore added.

Kirby is now focusing on getting healthy as he is nursing an ankle injury. "I had ankle problems during the season," he said. "I got an MRI about a week ago. I don't think it's anything too bad."

Preparation for his arrival in Boise will begin very soon. "During spring, I'll workout after school," he said. "I'll be lifting and throwing after school. I'll go to Boise for the spring scrimmages. Just listen in on what's going on," he added.

With that kind of talent and a work ethic to match, Bronco fans have plenty to look forward to over the next few years. will continue to have updates on Kirby Moore.
