With a stellar four-year career in the books, Waynesburg senior defensive tackle Darryl Moore Jr. recently added one more prestigious award to his already impressive resume. After another dominant season at defensive tackle, Moore was honored as Waynesburg's newest All-American.
The Boardman native was lauded by D3football.com as a third-team selection on its annual All-America Team. Moore was also selected as a 2011 preseason All-American by Beyond Sports Network and was eligible for the D3football.com team after earning first-team laurels on the website's All-South Region Squad.
Moore was tabbed with the national honor following another outstanding season as the centerpiece of Waynesburg's potent defensive front. The graduate of Boardman High School racked up 60 total tackles, 36 of which were solo stops, nine tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. He also broke up a pass, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble on his way to a second-straight All-South Region lauding from the website.
