EL DORADO, Kan. – There's nothing quite like beating your main rival. But Butler County (Kan.) Community College three-star offensive tackle Sherrone Moore couldn't quite put into words what it felt like to beat his team's big rival 65-28 on Saturday.
The mountain of an offensive tackle was pumped – almost as much as he is about his future in recruiting
Moore, who is 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, had a good game against rival Coffeyville. He was tested quite a bit by a stout Coffeyville defensive line that featured five-star defensive end Walter Fisher. But in the end, the Grizzlies were able to run and pass the ball all over the Red Ravens.
"We just focused all week in practice and prepared not only mentally but physically," Moore said. It just was all working. Our plan was to run the ball, but it was all working.
"It's a great feeling. We definitely earned it. We worked hard all spring in practice, then all year long and it was a strong test. It felt good that we passed it."
The next challenge ahead for Moore is the Kansas Jayhawk Conference playoffs. Butler's first round game is 1:30 p.m. Sunday at Andover High School against No. 8 seed Ft. Scott. Butler beat Ft. Scott 49-0 in late September.
What's also challenging for Moore is figuring out his future.
Moore is originally from Derby, Kan., and will graduate in December with three years to play two seasons. Since he's from the Midlands Region, Moore is said he's leaning toward both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
"I like O-State or OU," Moore said. "I like how they're both closer to home and closer to family. I know more about those programs than any other of the programs."
Moore also has offers from Arizona State, Iowa State and South Carolina. He would like to take all five of his official visits before he makes his final decision and with the playoffs coming up, he knows those trips will begin to start lining themselves up pretty quickly.
"It's going to start getting crazy," Moore said.
"I'd like to pick the perfect school and win a national championship. If do both things then this might be the best season I've ever had."
Moore is ranked by Rivals.com as a three-star prospect and the No. 29 junior college player in the nation.
