Moore Back in Town

Mississippi State held their seventh day of the June football camp sessions on Monday. One of the top prospects in attendance was a young man who is just beginning his high school career. Charles Moore of nearby Louisville High School had a very good day working as a linebacker with Coach Manny Diaz. Moore excelled in one-on-one drills and did his part to put his best foot forward.

"I feel like I had a pretty awesome day," Moore said. "I learned a lot and I am pretty sure my teammate, Daylen Gill did too. I enjoyed myself."

Moore reports that he felt he was at his best during the competition portion of camp that allowed him to demonstrate his ability to cover running backs out in the pass pattern.

"I feel good about how everything went," Moore said. "I have been working hard and we've all been preparing hard as a team."

Working under the watchful eye of Coach Manny Diaz, Moore believes he represented himself well.

"We didn't talk to much, but I believe he knew," Moore said. "We didn't chop it up too much. We were just working. He ran us through some tackling drills, the one-on-ones against the running backs and all kinds of different stuff. I learned a whole lot."

Mississippi State and Ole Miss have both talked offer, but Moore reports that his focus is on Louisville High football and what he needs to do to help his team get another golden football.

"I am not too worried about the offers," Moore said. "I am just trying to get better as a player and keep my grades up. I just want to stay focused on the little things.

"This year is a totally different year. We came together as a family after the seniors left. We knew we were a young team, so we had to come together. I look forward to us winning state again. I know that's kind of big to say coming from the summer, but I feel good about how we came together as brothers this spring. I feel like we are going to go back to state this year."
