"I couldn't be more excited," he noted. "It's basically a tryout for me. They want me as an athlete, so my situation is a little bit different. They are going to try me at multiple positions and see what I'm best at."
Through a 7-3 record in his first year at Liberty Christian (having transferred from Springtown in the offseason), and with the help of his offensive line led by senior Brad Lundblade, Moore has passed for more than 1,500 yards and 20 touchdowns, with nine scores and 1,000-plus yards on the ground.
The 6-foot-1, now 200-pounder (with 4.39 40-yard dash speed) has also split out wide for two catches for 40 yards and a touchdown in leading his Liberty Christian Warriors into the TAPPS playoffs, opening with San Antonio Central Catholic Saturday at 3:00 p.m.
"He has not been officially offered a [Kansas State] scholarship yet, but it could happen at any time," said Moore's father Mike. "The coaches have asked him to be patient and have promised that they are working toward that."
"He tested really well for them (at summer camp) and he's developed a trusted relationship with the entire staff," Mike continued. "They are going to try him at safety, quarterback, and wide receiver, and as you know, they have a history of plugging a talented, hard-working kid into their system and finding a place for him."
"They asked me to be patient with them," Moore told Scout.com's Randy Withers of his chance to earn a scholarship. "I know that this is the door God is opening for me. Some guys might say to wait, but this is what's right for me to do. That is why I am not afraid to say that I am going there."
