Moore One Shot from the Dome

All senior players want to go out on top and Alonzo Moore and his fellow seniors at Winnfield have a chance to do just that. With thirteen wins against no losses, the 2011 Tigers might prove to be a team of destiny. The talented Moore has pushed his recruitment to the back burner while he does his best to lead his team to the Louisiana Superdome next weekend.

"We play Calvary Baptist this week," said an excited Moore. "I am really looking forward to the game.

"This is the fourth round of the playoffs, so I know they are going to be a good team.

"We are working hard everyday to get ready and to go get another win."

Alonzo has drawn interest from several college programs, but Winnfield football is his top priority right now.

"I haven't really been focused on recruiting lately," said Moore. "I am just trying to stay focused on my team and our season.

"I am still talking to a couple of coaches, but I am not going to take anymore trips until after my season is over."

A trip to Nebraska kicked off the official visit slate and a few weeks ago, Moore took in all things Bulldog as Mississippi State rolled out the big Maroon carpet.

"I enjoyed my visit to Mississippi State," said Moore. "Dak Prescott was my host.

"I knew who he was, but I had never really hung out with him before. He is a great guy and we had a good time together.

"I saw him play before, so talked about some of that."

A repeat visitor to Starkville, Alonzo enjoyed getting to learn more about the day to day lives of the Bulldog football players.

"I have been up there three or four times," said Moore. "I spent a lot of time hanging out with Dak and the other players.

"I got to hang out with a lot of the coaches too and just talk about football and about what all they do up there.

"I enjoyed getting to hang out with the players and just see how everything was."

Despite being close to completion for the 2012 signing class, Mississippi State has maintained close contact with Alonzo.

"Coach Hevesy is recruiting me and he calls me every Thursday," said Alonzo. "We have a good relationship.

"I have talked some with Coach Mullen too. They have talked about me playing receiver, corner, kick returner or quarterback.

"They are sort of recruiting me as an athlete and we'll figure out the best position later. It doesn't really matter to me. I just want to play.

"I know they are coming to my game this week and they are supposed to come to my house sometime next week."

The Bulldogs are not the only college program to take advantage of the contact period.

"Nebraska came earlier this week," said Alonzo. "Coach Corey Raymond, the DBs coach, came to see me.

"The have talked about me playing the same positions Mississippi State has. It's all pretty much the same with them.

"I had a good visit up there and I am still talking with them a good bit."

With his high school career still ongoing, Moore is going to ride the wave out before getting too terribly serious about closing out his college recruitment.

"I know for sure that I am not going to do anything until after the season is over," said Alonzo. "I know I want to take a couple more trips and then I'll make a decision about everything."
