Athlete of the Week: MARC MOORE
Alhambra High School senior Marc Moore is this week’s Tribune Athlete of the Week.
Moore, a two-year varsity player, has been one of the team’s best goal-scorers over the last two years.
In his first varsity campaign, he scored 27 goals, and with one contest still left to play in his senior season, the attacker has already eclipsed that mark, currently sitting on 30 goals on the season for the Bulldogs.
In recent performances, Moore has been provider as well as scorer.
Even as the second best goal-scorer on the team, Moore can also pass the ball.
In fact, he and teammate Jack Eaves are the top two scorers and assist-men on the team.
Eaves assisted all but one of Moore’s five goals against College Park on May 2, and even though the team lost, the two seniors kept the pressure on the Falcons for a long time before the opponent was able to sit comfortably for a win.
Moore also was key in the ball-handling side of the game as he scooped up five ground balls for the Bulldogs.
He is third on the team in that distinction behind teammate Eaves and sophomore Manny Rodriguez, who leads the team with nearly double the next player in line.
