Acadiana High athlete Kevin Moore appeared on the prospect radar suddenly after flipping sides of the football after injures at the quarterback position and leading his team to the first round the LHSAA 5A State playoffs. Moore continued to start at linebacker for the Rams after being moved to quarterback earning All-Area Defensive MVP and All-District Defense finishing with 125 tackles, 33 assists, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, 11 tackles for loss, four interceptions, two sacks, four pass breakups and one defensive touchdown.
With the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns program located right there in Lafayette, Moore has visited games and practices a number of times. What does he think of the new faces on the staff and changes on the defensive side of the football?
“I like the changes on defense that they have implemented, they seem to be more aggressive,” Moore stated. “I had a chance to speak with the new defensive coordinator Coach Melvin Smith and I really like him. Coach Harbison and Coach Lucas seem pretty cool too. The staff seems to work well together and I expect them to be much better on the defensive side of the football.”
“I’ve been to a few games last season and attended practices as well,” said Kevin. “I know the improvements that are going on in the program and to the facilities. Coach Hudspeth stays in touch with me and we follow each other on Twitter and Facebook. I attended one of their camps last summer and I may attend another this summer.”
“I have plans to attend junior days at LSU, Miami and a few others,” Moore mentioned. “We start spring practice in May and play against Breaux Bridge for our spring game. We have a god group of starters coming back and some younger guys that are ready to step up to play. I think we are going to be back in the playoffs this season if everyone stays healthy.”
One thing is for certain, Kevin Moore is no longer a sleeper prospect in Louisiana. He is worthy of mention with some of the top linebackers in the south and the country.
