Short and Insufficient Profile: Shomari Moore

OK, so, during the dragging, sweaty, uncomfortable months of summer, we flippantly mentioned that we would be profiling every player on the team. It will only be fun and worthwhile, we decided, if we were both informative AND funny. Well, it would be really fun if we were drunk the entire time, but that’s neither here nor there. Thus, for these ten weeks leading up to the UL game, we will have at least one profile a day. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed the idea of doing them, but not the actual task. Oh, and we see the egregious “that’s what she said” in the headline.

We’d also like to use this italicized space to apologize to the families of the players whose last names end in ‘A’ or ‘B’ because these early ones might suck a little.

Snaggin’ a pick from the grasp of Champ and Boss’ younger brother, Stupidhead

Boring, Obligatory Vitals

Height–5’9”

Weight–185

40–4.4

Year–Senior

Position–Cornerback

Hometown–Camden, NJ (Camden)

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Marty Moore. No relation.

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Cousin of Dajuan Wagner. Blast from the past there. He once dropped a hundred in a high school game. Wagner, not Moore.

Something we made up about him: Super pumped about Matt’s new time slot (6PM, 93.9, every night!!!).

Items of legitimate interest: Has already completed his degree and plans to get his master’s or complete a second major this fall. Started three games a season ago, and was a freshman All-SEC performer in 2005.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Can play pretty much any position in the defensive backfield. Has good speed, but his size can be a detriment against lankier receivers.
