NEO's Devron Moore Does It Again

After a lightning delay of more than hour, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Junior College and Kilgore J.C. got the Southwest Junior College Football Conference game underway Saturday that Kilgore won 35-21. But the NEO A&M defense again was very active as was one of the top junior college safety prospects in the nation in Devron Moore.

The 6-1, 185-pound Devron Moore picked off a pass late in the first half and returned it 68 yards for a touchdown. It was his second pick six of the season and his third interception of the season. He also came into the game with 51 tackles, 33 unassisted stops.

"We were in zone coverage and I was sitting back playing over the top of the receiver and I don't think the quarterback saw me," said Moore, who just added a scholarship offer from TCU on Friday.

"The quarterback threw the ball and I went up and got it ahead of the receiver and then I just ran as fast as I can. Another receiver was trying to push me out of bounds, but I put a little move on him and then I went to the end zone."

Moore has not committed to anybody and said he is looking forward to taking visits. He has offers from TCU, Wisconsin, Illinois, Georgia State, New Mexico and Middle Tennessee. He is also getting attention from Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Iowa State.

NEO cornerback Keishawn Richardson also has offers from Wisconsin, New Mexico, Georgia State and Middle Tennessee. He had a good game defensively, and he also had a couple of impressive punt returns of 15 and 16 yards. Those will boost his punt return average. On the season, Richardson came in with 35 tackles and 7 passes defended.

The NEO defense also had several sacks and forced and recovered two fumbles to make it three turnovers gained on the day.
