Bearcat Insider caught up with senior Cincinnati Bearcats receiver Chris Moore this week to discuss how the team is progressing, watching teammate Shaq Washington become a school record holder and more.
BEARCAT INSIDER: Chris, how does it feel watching your teammate Shaq Washington become the all time leader in receptions in Bearcat history?
Chris Moore: It’s been a great experience to watch him progress through the years. We came in here together, we in the same class and we both have been thru the ups and downs. So it’s just great to see him do that. The entire game I was trying to tell the coaches to just give him that record here at home and it was awesome to see. He deserved it.
BEARCAT INSIDER: Offensively you guys put up 696 yards of total offense on the Knights Saturday. What are going to be some keys to repeat that kind of performance against Houston?
Chris Moore: Just keep the same momentum. Don’t turn the ball over and when we are in the redzone, make sure we come away with touchdowns instead of field goals. Try to get the running game going with Tion (Green), Hosey (Williams) and Mike (Boone) and we will come out with the win.
BEARCAT INSIDER: What are some keys for you guys to stay level headed after that huge win Saturday? In college football you can never get too high or low so what are some keys to that knowing you’re playing in a big time football game against an undefeated Houston team?
Chris Moore: I just think we have experience in the past when things like this happen. We’ve played games where we were up a lot of points and the next week had to come play big teams. You basically just start every week like it’s a new season start fresh and keep the same mindset and same work mentality every week in practice.
BEARCAT INSIDER: Chris what are your expectations for this team the rest of the season?
Chris Moore: Just do whatever I can to help this team win whether it’s making a key block or making a big play in the passing game. Just doing whatever it takes and if those things happen we should win out the rest of the season.
