Moore lists reasons for Maryville


Nick Moore, former FHS standout tailback whos among the programs short list of All-time leading rushers, listed four reasons for making Maryville College his next school of choice.

I just really like some of the players there, and the coach [Tony Ierulli] seems like a really good coach, the 2006 FHS graduate said about the NCAA Division III college program. I talked to him awhile, before the signing, and he made me feel real comfortable about it.

Other than that, I may have a good chance of playing there my freshman year I dont know if its going to be the tailback spot, but maybe get on the field somewhere, Moore added.

Also, I just feel Maryville is a really good school, academically, so when I come out of there Ill be ready to take care of myself on my own.

Moore said he plans to major either in biology or chemistry.

The 5-foot-8, 170-pound Moore rushed for 1,447 yards and 12 touchdowns in 268 attempts as a senior last fall, helping lead Farragut to a Region 2-5A regular season co-championship, a state quarterfinal playoff appearance, two wins versus archrival Bearden and a final 10-3 record.

I just think its a perfect fit for him, Im so proud of him, hes always been dependable for us, FHS head coach Eddie Courtney said.

Hes been a very good runningback, not only carrying the football, but blocking for us. And hes found a good fit for him academically, and I think he can go there and play.

Moore, 18, was center-stage last month during a brief signing ceremony in the FHS Commons among fellow students, teachers and administrators. Also on hand were his mother and father, Lori and Edward Moore, along with younger brother, Jonathan, a rising sophomore at FHS, and Courtney.
