After receiving a lot of interest on the FCS level, including serious interest from Fordham, Exeter’s Brett Moyer decided to commit to West Chester (Division II) back in late May of this year. Moyer took some time to talk with Scout Penn Preps about his offseason and his goals for the upcoming season.
SPP: During the recruiting process, what type of feedback did you receive from colleges as far as how they viewed you as a football player?
Moyer: Coaches saw me as an aggressive player that is quick, explosive, and powerful off the ball. Coaches also thought that I had great hips and that I was great at running from sideline to sideline to make plays.
SPP: What are some things that you did during the offseason to help you improve as a football player?
Moyer: I lifted weights and did speed and agility work a well. I worked on my explosiveness with Jon Murphy (Rise Academy) and I took some speed classes with Dave Brixius (EXSP). I also lifted and trained with my team.
SPP: What are some individual goals that you’ve set for this season?
Moyer: First, as a team, we want to repeat as Berks Section I Champions. As the only returning starter on defense, I want to be the lead our unit by example. I also want to be the best defensive lineman in Berks County.
SPP: What has the game of football meant to you on and off of the field?
Moyer: Football is my driving force. I give all-out maximum effort in every training session and on every play on the field. It’s all I know. This mindset is now becoming a part of other areas of my life thank to football.
PENN PREPS THOUGHTS
Brett Moyer’s work ethic, quickness of the edge and tenacity will enable him to be one of top defensive linemen in Berks County. Moyer made 51 tackles (34 solo) and collected 3.5 sacks during the 2015 season. As the line returning starter on defense, Exeter will be counting on Moyer to provide leadership with an inexperienced group. We believe he’s more than qualified for the task.
