Rhoads on Moore
“Devron Moore took the long road to arrive at this scholarship. He has earned numerous honors and awards and he caught our attention very early. He’s got great ball skills and he’s a physical football player. He will come downfield and hit you. He’s a student of the game and I think he will provide great leadership you need at the safety position. He really loved the organization and attention to detail of our program, and I think that won him over.”
