Last year Moore was named to the All-Metro team by the Clarion Ledger after hauling in 36 passes for 501 yards and 10 TD's on offense and 5 int's and 1 kickoff return on defense and special teams.

"I feel it was a pretty good year for me and my team. I think I did a lot to help us win, and I am going to try and do even more my senior season. I feel we could have did even better in the games we lost. I feel we could have won all of them."

Who are the main colleges involved in William's recruitment?

"Ole Miss sends me letters everyday. I have gotten a couple more letters from some more schools like Auburn. I have gotten a couple from LSU, Alabama, MSU, and USM too."
