Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) shattered many national records at the WR position during his career as a Mustang. He set a national record with 95 TD catches in his HS career and also set the record for TD catches in a season with 34.

The personal accolades are great but Kirby's shining moment was winning the 2A State Championship in 2007. "Winning the state championship was something I always dreamed of," he said. To accomplish that is something I really cherish. We got back there this past season. It just didn't happen. Winning is always the main goal."

Moore (6'2.5, 197, 4.6) played nearly the entire season with an ankle injury. He's currently on the road to recovery. "I had my ankle scoped on Monday," he said. "It's fine now. I'm already walking on it," he added.

Kirby will make the trip to Boise this upcoming weekend for his official visit. "I heard you eat the best meals," he said. "That's always good. I'm thinking that we'll be going to the basketball game. See a lot of the little things. I'm sure there are some things I haven't paid much attention to. Probably meet some people on the education side."

Chris Petersen and Justin Wilcox have been in contact with Kirby this week. "I talked to Coach Wilcox and Coach Pete," he said. "Basically, they were just making sure everything is alright. They got me a ticket." Kirby's brother, Kellen, will be out of town this weekend. "I think he's going down to the Jazz-Cavaliers game on Saturday."

Learning the playbook is always essential to success. "Coach Petersen called me about a week or so ago," he said. "He wanted me to talk to my brother about formations and stuff. Just learn stuff," Moore added.

Looking ahead, there are plenty of goals to accomplish. "First, I want to graduate," he said. "Make sure we get that done. Be a part of something special. I think these teams the next couple years are going to make it into the national spotlight. Make a lot of memories with the team and my brother."

Recently, the Broncos have been a pre-season Top 10 pick in some early polls. "I told Kellen that when he was home," he said. "He was excited. It should be fun. I can't wait. Oregon in the first game. I've been thinking about that and I'm excited. I think the expectations are deserved with all of the players coming back."

Moore is staying conditioned. "I have conditioning during the day," he said. "I lift during school. We run a lot."
