For them, believing in me and seeing me was just good, âMoore told KHON2 sports reporter Alan Hoshida,â It’s really important to take the pressure off my shoulders and my parents too.

I’ve been to their games before and I’m finally going to put the hat on and sign my letter of intent soon. I am just ready. I have no words for it. I’m actually very happy that we have a full season this time around. In fact, we’re starting the season against my brother and Campbell, which makes it even more exciting. “
