Thanks to a 65-yard touchdown pass from Brendon Kay, more UC fans are familiar with redshirt freshman Chris Moore.
However, those of us that have watched some practices the last couple of years have seen Moore's work and know the story behind him. Right now, Moore is part of a deep receiving crew. Next season (and possibly sooner) No. 15 could be on of your "go-to" guys.
He comes from Jefferson High School in Tampa and was recruited by a number of top programs including Auburn and the local South Florida Bulls. A teammate wound up at USF.
Jefferson High is also known for its great athletes, including baseball greats Fred McGriff, Tino Martinez, Luis Gonzalez, Tony LaRussa, former Tampa mayor and Florida governor Bob Martinez, and the "fight doctor" Ferdie Pacheco (Muhammad Ali's physician). (In the video below, I included Dwight Gooden and Garry Sheffield by mistake who went to neighboring Hillsborough High School. I apologize, I lived in the area 22 years ago. I have interviewed and met all of those listed though.)
Suffice it to say, Chris Moore could reach the same level of success of those I mentioned. Here's the "Jefferson Jet" outside of the Bob Goin team room in the Lindner Center.
