Louisville sophomore is a player to watch.

Mississippi State was the host site for the New Hope Football Jamboree that brought together some of the top football teams in the state for the pre-season dress rehearsal. For the Wildcats of Louisville the short drive to Starkville proved to be a productive one, as Coach M.C. Miller's team got off on the right foot with a shut out win over Shannon. Rising sophomore Charles Moore did his part to aid in the strong defensive effort.

Charles Moore is just a sophomore with the build of a college freshmen. Moore is a true sophomore despite his mature physical appearance. Playing as a stand up linebacker in a two point stance, Moore is a regular in opponent's backfields. His job is simple, chase the football. As a result, Moore is a regular nuisance, but is a little one dimensional in his current style of play. Should the talented sophomore continue to grow, a college future as a defensive end is a relatively certainty unless his growth patterns force him to slide inside and play defensive tackle.

Moore is always near the action and appears to have good instincts when it comes to finding the football. At times, he seems a little hesitant to put his nose in there and lay the big lick, but that should come in time. As he fills out his 6-4 frame, look for Moore to be a very physical player who plays big.

Moore has three years of high school football left, so expect to see and hear his name quite a bit in media reports and recruiting updates. Home state programs Mississippi State and Ole Miss have already extended offers with more options expected to follow as the Louisville, Mississippi product continues to develop.
