Classroom

In his time with the Ragin’ Cajuns, Dylan Moore has been twice named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America teams earning first-team honors in 2016 and second-team honors in 2017. He was also named the 2016 Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Male Student-Athlete of the Year and was awarded the William McGregor Castellini Scholarship, which rewards outstanding academic achievement in the POLS department. During his time with Louisiana, he has been named to both the President’s List and Sunbelt Commissioner’s List in each of his three years, and he has been exceptional in the classroom maintaining a strong 4.0 GPA. He currently plans on attending law school, and after law school he hopes to practice Intellectual Property or Patent law. Recently he has taken the LSAT twice and has been accepted into Law School at the University of Texas.

Character

Moore has been an example of a team leader with great character. He epitomizes what it means to be a student-athlete. Both his character and leadership have been outstanding, and he genuinely cares about every member of the team including the coaches and staff. In three years he has never violated a team polity and has been a shining example for all of the younger players on the team to follow. Head Coach Tony Robichaux had the following to say about Moore: “Dylan is a player who knows the way, is willing to go the way, and ultimately is showing other players the way. That’s what leadership is. Today’s athletes’ athletic courage is at an all-time high, but their moral courage is at an all-time low. Dylan’s moral courage is equal to or higher than his athletic courage. I have coached 30 years at the Division-I level, and Dylan is one of the most special student-athletes I have ever had the privilege to coach.”

Because of his leadership, he has been selected several times to represent the department at high-profile events including the announcement of current Director of Athletics Dr. Bryan Maggard.

Community

Moore has given much back to the community in his time with the program, serving as a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. In three years, he has volunteered his time with the Big Event, American Heart Association, Soles4Souls, Christmas Adopt-A-Family, Reading in Red, the Buddy Walk and many other causes. Each year the coaching staff assigns each player to do 10 hours of community service in the fall semester, and he was chosen by the staff to schedule all 350 hours on the team. He also has been a mentor to a special-needs student from his high school in Hughes Springs, Texas.

Competition

In three seasons with Louisiana, Moore has posted 38 saves and a 11-5 record with a 1.98 ERA and 151 strikeouts in 136.2 innings pitched. He owns both the program and Sun Belt Conference record for saves in a career. He also holds the school record for saves in a season with 14. In 2016, he was named to the NCBWA All-America Second Team and the ABCA South Central All-Region Second Team. He was also selected to the 2016 Sun Belt All-Conference First Team, 2016 LSWA All-Louisiana First Team and 2016 Sun Belt All-Tournament Team as a sophomore. In 2015, he was tabbed a Collegiate Baseball Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American, NCBWA Freshman All-America First Team selection and Perfect Game Freshman All-American. He also earned 2015 Sun Belt All-Conference Second Team and 2015 Sun Belt All-Tournament Team honors. He has allowed only 16 of 62 inherited runners to score in three seasons as the team’s closer. He has been dominant on the mound holding opponents to a .173 average during his career. During his sophomore season, he recorded an impressive 0.91 ERA with 14 saves and a 6-1 record.
