Football makes men, Moore says PDF Print
Friday, 14 December 2007 14:19

While they may still be college kids to their parents, the Mountaineer Football team has proved themselves to Coach Jerry Moore.

He says they’re above and beyond the title of “kid.”

 

“I think you can build men through football. I believe that wholeheartedly and I don’t know if you can build men going out there and being 0-10 and 0-11. I think there’s a part of building men that part of it’s winning and part of it’s being successful and giving up things to be where you want to be.”

 

For some players, Corey Lynch included, Sunday’s graduation means it’s the last game of their college career. Coach Jerry Moore has nothing but good words for the senior class.

 

“We’re excited about this class. We’ve had great leadership.”

 

The past three classes have been phenomenal.

 

“The first two won championships, and hopefully the third one will, but I would never compare this football team to the first one. I mean, how could you compare this team to seeing Richie limp down the field in the second half and making plays? It’s just a different deal. In the second year everything really went very smooth. There were very few injuries. We won fourteen in a row. You can’t compare that to this year. Every team, and I think it’s good, has its own identity.”
