Weatherford (TX) defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore has seen the fortunes of his high school team turn since the start of district play. Struggles on the offensive side of the ball due to youth and inexperience resulted in a winless non-district performance. However, with time and seasoning, the team is coming around having won two of its last three district contests despite a loss to Mansfield Timberview last weekend.
"Yeah, we've gotten on a roll," Lewis-Moore said. "We are getting comfortable with the new schemes and we are believing in ourselves. We're playing hard-nosed football and getting the job done."
The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Scout.com four-star prospect is dealing with opposing defenses run away from him and negate his pass rushing abilities with quick dump passes, but Lewis-Moore realizes it's part of the game.
"I used to get frustrated, but there's nothing I can do about it," Lewis-Moore said. "As long as I stay patient and contain my gaps, I know it will create plenty of opportunities for my teammates to make the plays. So it's good for the team."
That doesn't mean the blue chip defensive lineman isn't making his share of plays. The Texas A&M commitment has racked up over 30 tackles (nine for loss) and four sacks to his credit.
While his senior football season is turning around, Lewis-Moore is wondering about his future at Texas A&M with all the rumors surrounding Coach Dennis Franchione and the program.
"I'm seeing what's happening and I'm not sure what to think about it," Lewis-Moore said. "I wish I knew this before I committed."
However, the Weatherford native remains a solid commit to the Aggies and will wait to see what transpires before making any changes to his recruiting status.
"I'm going to wait and sit tight for now," Lewis-Moore said. "I made my commitment to the school and the coaches. If something happens to the coaches, then I'll need to see who will be my coach and talk to them before I do anything."
Lewis-Moore is hoping to take an unofficial visit for the Kansas game this weekend, as he won't be able to make the Aggies' final home game against rival Texas.
"I've got some things going on around Thanksgiving so I won't make the Texas game," Lewis-Moore said. "That's why I really want to make it down there for Kansas. That's the last time I can see them."
