Thoughts on the season so far? 

We have a family-like culture and bond like never before. We know we can dominate teams, we just have to keep doing our thing.

Christian Moore’s Wisdom:

What’s your favorite part about being on the football team?

Meeting people and bonding with my teammates. It’s a fun experience and I hope everyone can feel that connection one day.

What’s the hardest part of being on the team?

Probably when you’re out there trying not to mess up and getting over the feeling of messing up. It’s something everyone feels but you can get over it by doing your job and assignment.

How long have you been on the team?

About a year and a half.

What position do you play? Do you like it? Why?

Wide Receiver and Defensive Back. I love it. I like running a lot, I am good at it, and it’s not too complicated because I would probably forget the plays if I played something else.

These teams are still on the rise, bonding, practicing, and exercising all to be the champions we know they are. But their success comes from the support of everyone, so tune in for the HOCO game on September 29th to see these two amazing teams battle Silver Creek. Trust us, you don’t want to miss them crush it this year.
