Athlete Of The Week: Jordan Moore

Posted: Updated:

Our Athlete Of The Week was with us earlier this week, saying he was still committed to sign with A&M. But first, this senior is committed to winning state for Yoakum. Yoakum football's Area playoff win against George West, led by Jordan Moore. The senior rushed for 239 yards and two touchdowns; caught a 36 yard touchdown pass and had a 98-yard kickoff return TD. Said Moore, "I was proud of myself and the team. On the kick return everyone got their blocks and helped me get to the outside. That's our biggest key. Once any of our guys get to the outside, it can get ugly. That's what we've been working on all year and it happened. I was able to go to the outside and score."
Jordan Moore leads the Bulldogs in rushing with 751 yards and nine touchdowns. He leads Yoakum in pass receiving yards with 700 and nine more TD's. Jordan also leads the team in points and interceptions.  Said head coach Bo Robinson,"he's done a great job for us all year in whatever we've asked him to do. Early in the year he played mostly receiver. The last few weeks we've featured him at tailback. He does whatever we ask him to do and he does it well. He'll probably be the first one to tell you he has some good people up in front of him that create holes." Said Moore, "Winning state is the best thing about it. Last year as a junior I wasn't able to win it. But I was able to get a taste of it. I feel us losing it was the best thing that ever happened to Yoakum. It got us humble. We don't think we're invincible now. Last year we got on a roll and we thought we were invincible. This year we thought the same thing because we returned most of the guys. We got a little beat up by Cuero but we found our true identity. Ever since then we're just rolling." Just like in last year's playoff run to the state finals, Yoakum football now has a playoff rematch. The Bulldogs face Van Vleck in the 3A Division I Regional Saturday night at 6:00 at Katy Legacy Field. Yoakum beat the Leopards on October 27, 49-12.
