Lukas Moore --
Smooth. It's the perfect word to describe Joey Moore's game. His look too, the Junior looked the part of "star quarterback" in warmups at Waverly. He walked around the field with confidence, and the Bulldog uniform fit him like a dream. He even has an arm sleeve that makes him look like a Madden created player.
The new Athens quarterback set off some fireworks, and had some rookie mistakes in his debut. Athens lost to playoff-caliber Waverly, 30-27, in a game the Bulldogs will look back on as one that got away. Moore was 24/38 (63%) for 278 yards with three touchdowns through the air. He also added 60 yards on the ground on 26 attempts, a mixture of designed runs and scrambles.
The ball zipped out of Moore's hand with unexpected strength, even on a wet field. His accuracy on short and intermediate passes was excellent.
