If you plan on seeing the Moore Lions football team play this season, keep your eyes on returning starter Dylan Buchheit.

Buchheit is not only the Lions’ leading tackler, he is one of the top defenders in Class 6A-I, and as a senior this year, will continue to be relied upon to lead the Lions’ defense from his free safety spot. This season he is being utilized as a wide receiver more as well, which will allow him to show off his skills on both sides of the ball.

As someone who has played football since he was 5 years old, Buchheit knows what it takes to be successful in the sport. He strives to be a leader and a good example for his teammates.

“Helping others work harder and pushing them past their own expectations,” is what Buchheit says motivates him to be his best on the field.

His father has been an important influence in Buchheit’s life and has helped him build his character over the years.

“My Dad has been the biggest role model in my life, teaching me to never sell myself short and always have a great work ethic in everything I do,” he said.

When it comes to football, Buchheit’s favorite thing about competing as a Lion is showing his school spirit and in his words, “proving that Moore shouldn’t be underestimated.” Buchheit brings that determination to every game and he is looking forward to the rest of his senior season.

“I expect our team to make the playoffs and compete against the best teams in the state,” he said.

Outside of football, Buchheit also plays baseball and is involved in a leadership program sponsored by Link Crew called Fuse. After high school he plans to attend college and get a bachelor’s degree to become a physical therapist.
