There are players you encounter that you just root for and 2009 Clover High standout Ricky Moore is one of those guys. The sheer amount of effort and heart that he puts on the line each time he touches the football field just begs for a huge cheering section. His hard nosed brand of football has numerous college football programs throughout the southeast showing strong interest.
For the past few months Ricky Moore has been swamped with letters and interest from schools all over. Some programs however have been stepping up their efforts in comparison to others and Moore shared those schools with us. "Georgia Tech, Coastal Carolina, Charleston Southern, Liberty, and Presbyterian are really coming the hardest. I still get a good bit of mail from Duke and North Carolina State too." Lehigh along with William & Mary are two more programs who have been showering Moore with attention as of late.
Asked if he had a favorite currently he replied, "Georgia Tech and Liberty." The Yellow Jackets are in the group because of a few factors. "Well my number one is Georgia Tech I love their offense they run a spread version of what we run at Clover."
Liberty had previously told Moore that playing time would be readily available during his freshman season.
With school out recently and the offseason upon us he reflected on his spring practice and plans for this offseason. "Spring practice was great. I'm not just at fullback and linebacker anymore. I'm more of a athlete. I run the ball a lot more in all the positions. I just love having the football in my hands."
Last season while helping the Blue Eagles to the AAAA Division 2 state championship Moore landed a couple of player of the week awards for the county.
There will be some unofficial visits for Moore and he will continue a strict workout regiment to prepare for next season. "I workout everyday except Saturday. I run on Sundays. My number one goal for this offseason is to improve my speed. My forty time is a 4.6 but by opening game I want to be running 4.5 or a 4.4."
Despite the dedication to his workout regimen when he does have free time you can find Moore focusing on his other true love besides football. "I enjoy hunting and fishing." On the academic side of things he reports a 870 on the SAT but says he will keep taking the test until he at least gets a score of 1000 or better.
