Moore Staying Focused On State

SMU commit Roderick Moore has recovered from an injury and hopes to lead his Dallas Skyline team to a state championship

Dallas Skyline defensive end Roderick Moore is fully recovered from an ankle injury he encountered in fall camp and it showed in his first game against The Woodlands (TX).

Moore had two sacks and six tackles in Skyline's open win and is not feeling any lingering effects from his injury.

"It won't stop me from playing," Moore said. "I had a high ankle sprain, and I got two screws and a plate put in my ankle."

The 6-foot, 240 pound three-star SMU commit is planning a visit to SMU to catch a game this season, and it appears that he will be on campus for the TCU game in a few weeks.

Moore will be making the trip with his family and has already visited SMU a couple times since his commitment in May.

"I am just going to watch and see how the defense looks and how everything is going," Moore said.

Moore is a part of Skyline's talented roster filled with potential Division-1 talent. Skyline has also won its second game against Arlington-Martin 37-34 to move to 2-0 on the season.

One of the key playmakers for his squad, Moore will be looked to by SMU to come in and play outside linebacker- a switch that he says he's ‘very comfortable' with.

SMU head coach June Jones has told Moore that his pass rushing skills will be a big part for him to make plays for SMU once he is on the Hilltop, but until then Moore is focused on helping his team win a state championship.
