Position: Wide receiver
Hometown: Bullard, Texas
After seven catches in two years, Moore has 19 receptions this year. In back-to-back weeks, he has recorded the two longest plays from scrimmage this season, including a 74-yard touchdown pass from J.W. Walsh against Iowa State on Saturday.
People are starting to call you Chuck. Where did that originate?
It's kind of my name around the locker room. I'm used to it. It's been two years.
What are your favorite TV shows?
"Modern Family" and "Duck Dynasty."
What do you like to do outside of football?
Hunt and fish and hang out with my girlfriend.
You played quarterback in high school. Do you miss it?
I did, but not really anymore. ... I loved playing quarterback in high school, but I love being a part of this team and being a receiver here.
Was it difficult to adjust, having not played receiver before college?
I think I'm still adjusting to it. It was definitely a transition, but I knew coming in that receiver was my position. I never learned any routes. I knew how to throw to them, but I never had to run them.
Looking back on your big catches the past two weeks, what was that like?
My sports marketing teacher was joking with me today about 72 yards last week and 74 yards this week, now hopefully I get a 76-yarder this week. It's always fun to score and definitely if it's a long play like that, I enjoy just running for a while.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I dabble in the piano. My mom made me take lessons. I didn't really like them at the time.
