Staying positive

Linebacker Kendall Moore from Southeast Raleigh High School (Raleigh, N.C.) is keeping an eye on how Notre Dame finishes the season, but he still has business to take care of on the field.

Notre Dame has played a lot of close games throughout the season, and recently they haven't had the magic they've needed to pull out last second wins. Kendall Moore (6-foot-2.5, 229-pounds) has watched every game, and has witnessed the struggles of his future teammates.

"I definitely see the ups and downs, but I like the fact that they don't give up," Moore responded when asked about Notre Dame's season. "We tend to get ourselves into holes. It definitely seems to be a different team that shows up every week. It does concern me, but I'm a positive person. As long as I get up there, I feel like I can help, so I'm definitely thinking positive about that.

"I really don't know exactly what's going on (with the coaching situation). I'll definitely try to talk to coach Brown to see what's going on and what could possibly happen. I really don't know enough about the situation to even make a comment on it right now though. I really haven't been thinking about it, although I have been hearing more about it the last couple weeks. I just need more information about it."

Coaches from other schools have been contacting Moore, but he's intent on sticking to his commitment. Right now he's just trying to focus on his next game.

"We're in the second round of the play-offs," Moore said. We play Harnett Central this Friday. We lost a tough one to them a couple weeks ago. They beat us on senior night. I know I'm excited and I know our defense is revved up and ready to get back out there and play them. It was a tough loss, so everyone is happy to get a chance to get out there and play them again."
