Upstate Two-Sport Prospect Has Many Options

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a free look at the individual sports career of Pat Moore, who can compete division one wise in two different sports -- basketball and baseball ...

Pat Moore, a 6-foot-6 combo forward from Notre Dame High School in Utica, N.Y., is going to be a senior prospect in the Fall with several options. Moore competes on a division one level in two different sports -- basketball and baseball. Plus, Moore is an excellent student.

His AAU coach, Jim Hart, has already spoken to us several times about Moore's value to his Albany City Rocks basketball program. "He just finds a way to help you win a game," said Hart.

Moore is considered a solid prospect in the two sports. It's now up to him which sport he decides to focus on or to give it a shot in both arenas.

For now, Hart has told us that Moore will concentrate his improvement as an athlete in the sport of basketball. It's easy to think this way since the bulk of the big events on the basketball AAU circuit are coming up in the next three months.


A gifted athlete who seems to succeed in the most stressful sport challenges, Moore will have many options as he moves towards a decision regarding his college career.

Moore has the basketball smarts and skill level to help his teams win close contests. Pat has down it a number of ways too from our personal experience of watching him compete mainly on the AAU level.

Pat, in the past, has hit clutch free throws, dived on a floor to get a loose ball, grab rebounds in traffic, or hit a corner jumper.

Moore was a key player in the summer for the Albany City Rocks basketball program for 16 and under age category.


The next three months will provide us a real glimpse into the level of schools involved basketball wise. Here is the list:

Fairfield, Fordham, St. Francis, Manhattan, Northeastern, Stony Brook, Colgate, Cornell, Jacksonville, Rhode Island, and Columbia.
