Robert Morris University
Moore has shown marked improvement in his academics as he has earned his best two semester GPAs — both above 3.25 — in his most recent two terms. This past fall, he finished with a 3.44 GPA for the semester, which was his best mark for a single semester. Moore is on track to graduate with a degree in management this spring.
Moore was selected as a team captain for the upcoming 2011 season. “He’s a hard-worker who leads by example and always puts the team first,” head coach Bear Davis said.
Moore has volunteered his time on multiple occasions throughout his career at RMU as the men’s lacrosse team devotes at least one day each year to improving the surrounding community around them. This past fall, Moore and fellow teammates took time out on a September weekend to team up with the Coraopolis, Pa., police department to improve specific aspects of the town. The team performed landscaping tasks and helped paint crosswalks and directional arrows for the safety of residents. Moore and his teammates performed work at a local park the previous year. In 2008, Moore and his teammates planned, organized and participated in a Christmas Carnival for residents of the Bradley Center — children that range from the ages of six to 18 and have been abused or neglected at some point in their life. In addition to arranging the event, the student-athletes played games with the children and got to spend time just talking one-on-one.
Moore has been one of the key pieces in building Robert Morris into a winning program that has received national notice. He became the first player in program history to earn all-America honors, which he captured from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association at the conclusion of the 2010 season. The 2010 Northeast Conference Player of the Year, Moore became the program’s all-time leader in both points (134) and assists (50) as a junior. He broke the single-season school record for points with 60, leading the way on the nation’s highest-scoring team, and also received All-NEC First Team honors in 2010. Moore finished among the top 20 nationally in points per game (4.0), assists per game (1.67) and shot percentage (.461) last season. He enters his senior season on a 30-game point streak and was named a preseason all-American by Inside Lacrosse.
