Like our athletes Coach Moore holds himself  to a higher standard of excellence. He is serious and passionate about coaching but still has fun. His philosophy is to have his players have fun while still being called “work” to prepare for football games.

From Coach Moore:
“Jr. Raider Football teaches cooperation and team work, helps develop positive social skills and teaches respect for others. It helps build self-confidence, a positive self-image and self-worth. Because a large variety of skills and physical abilities are required on our team, there is a position for every child to play. We encourage you and your athletes to come join us this Spring for our Spring Practice. Which we will be covering Speed & Agility and other football related skills and drills. Spring Practice will also give me an opportunity to introduce myself personally to you and your athletes as well as them getting to know their team mates.”

Coaching Philosophy

  • Be organized: Have a plan
  • Include all participants: Regardless of ability, disability, age, gender or ethnic background
  • All Coaches should advise, instruct and demonstrate
  • Make Football Fun: It’s all about the kids!!!!!
  • Tempo: Everything fast but productive
  • Enthusiasm: Upbeat, Intense & Proud to a Raider
  • Energy and “SWAG”
  • Maintain discipline throughout the season: Fair & Friendly
  • Student Athletes “First”

Coach Moore is married with seven children and two grandchildren.
