Moore milestone: 600-plus
Long-time FHS head coach reaches 600 wins in 21st season as Lady Admiral volleyball skipper


Another year, another milestone for Farragut High School volleyball head coach David Moore.

Having led four of his Lady Admiral teams to the TSSAA Class AAA state tournament in addition to District 4-AAA and Region 2-AAA dominance in recent seasons, Moore won his 600th game Monday, Aug. 20.


It came in a two-game sweep of Carter during the KIL Tournament in FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium.

In his 21st season as FHS volleyball head coach, Moore — who also has milestone victory totals, multiple district championships and a handful of state tourney appearances as FHS softball skipper — was praised by two of his 2007-08 volleyball seniors.

Amber Pyle, defensive specialist, said Moore is a “good coach because he‘s really big on fairness, he makes sure that every player’s going to be able to get some playing time.

“Individually, I know he’s helped me develop skill-wise as a player, by talking to me during practice,” Pyle added. “Or during a game, like when I get frustrated. He’s there to, like, pick us up.'

Saying Moore deflected praise for 600 wins, crediting his players, Pyle added, “He’s grateful for his players ... he’s very modest about it.”

Diana Deer, defensive specialist, said Moore has “helped us get to state two times while I’ve been playing for him. He makes it more, like, we have freedom, for us to be more like a team, instead of forcing things upon us. It makes it easier to play as a team that way.

'I know a lot of coaches are strict on their players, and that’s what makes teams fall apart. He’s not like that, he’s helped us a lot.”

As for reaching 600 wins, “He definitely deserves it, for how much time he puts into it,” Deer said.
