Recruiting: Moore Plays Big Role In Title Win

Recent Oklahoma State offer and standout Tulsa Union athlete Tracy Moore confirmed Friday night after Moore and his Union teammates won the Class 6A state championship that he has received a scholarship offer from Oklahoma State University.

That provided Moore and his friend and teammate running back Jeremy Smith some extra incentive for the title game with it being played in Oklahoma State's Boone Pickens Stadium.

"I did receiver an offer from Oklahoma State, yes sir," confirmed Moore to Union radio sideline reporter Gary "Doc" Blevins. "I have not committed yet."

The 6-4, 215-pound Moore is a special athlete that the Redskins have used in a variety of ways. He can play tight end, play as an H-back, a big wide receiver, and he has played in the backfield, which he did Friday night to help ice the game carry the ball several times for about 20 yards moving the chains and keeping the clock moving.

Moore also caught four passes in the contest for 78 yards, including a 30-yard reception in the second half from a scrambling Chase Boyce at quarterback for Union on a scoring drive after Jenks had tied the game at 20-20. Moore did it all despite dealing with nagging injuries.

"Yes sir, the coaches kept coming over to the training table and saying, 'Can you go? Can you go?' Nothing was going to stop me," answered Moore.

Moore, who has also been offered by Iowa State, Missouri and Tulsa, finished the season with 71 receptions for 1,024 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also rushed for a touchdown. He will no doubt be up for all kinds of All-State honors.
