  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: The Overcomer

Everything seemed to be heading in that direction, too, until the injury bug struck and derailed those plans. Moore broke his wrist the week before Washington County’s first game of the season. Head coach Eric Sagrecy initially speculated that the injury would cost him three-to-four weeks of playing time; it ended up sidelining him for the entire year after a surgery was needed to repair his wrist.
