In his third season as head coach, Brad Hill and the Moore Lions are focused on building something off the playoff appearance from a season ago. Two-time VYPE Top 100 selectee Daniel Hishaw Jr. (6-0, 220, Sr.) has developed into one of the top players in the class. The dual-threat quarterback rushed for 776 yards and 13 touchdowns last season and threw for 1,833 yards and 16 TDs. His numbers are certainly a huge part of the offense. Jayce Gardner (5-10, 215, Sr.) has the tailback job locked up. In 2018 Gardner rushed for 488 yards with six TDs. He will also start on defense playing one of the outside linebacker spots. Alex Baxter (6-2, 220, Sr.) will start at the H-back slot and tight end. Baxter grabbed 16 passes for 200 yards and two scores a year ago. Dylan Mallet (5-10, 175, Sr.) is another receiver in the passing game for Hishaw. Mallet had seven receptions for 153 yards in a limited role last season. Jalen Gordon (6-2, 285, Sr.) will start at tackle and Jakari Sykes (6-1, 310, Jr.) solidifies one of the guard spots. Coach Hill is looking forward to seeing newcomer Brandon Girard (Jr.) at wide receiver. 


Gardner and Hishaw will both play defense. Gardner is tasked with playing outside linebacker while Hishaw will help the secondary. Marcus Morris (6-3, 220, Sr.) is another linebacker the Lions will depend on for big plays this season. Morris had 109 tackles a year ago with two interceptions and four fumble recoveries. He could also see time on offense at running back. Rocco Mays (5-10, 280, Jr.) is a bulldozer at noseguard. Last season Mays had 21 tackles and a sack. Cole Karn (6-3, 225, Sr.) is another big dog in the trenches for the Lions. Karn recorded 66 tackle and five sacks last season. Austin Gross (6-2, 225, Jr.) is a big linebacker with solid production. Gross had 51 tackles in 2018. Jake Cordova (6-1, 175, Sr.) starts at strong safety and Jaiden West (6-0, 190, Sr.) gets the start at corner. West had four INTs last season, while Cordova notched 79 tackles. Evan Biederman (Sr.) returns after suffering an ACL injury in 2018. His return will help this secondary amalgamate into a solid unit.
