Moore, one of only nine UVa All-Americans, turned in one of the most prolific wrestling careers after just one season as a Cavalier.
In 2003-04, Moore etched his name into numerous categories in the UVa wrestling record books. Moore finished the season with an amazing record of 51-1 overall, 17-0 in dual match action with 34 wins coming by fall. He shattered both the UVa single-season and career record for most falls at Virginia in just one year after posting 34 falls in 2003-04. Moore's 51 single-season wins ranks him first all-time at UVa for most wins in a single season and his 17 dual match wins are the second best mark ever at UVa. His .981 winning percentage is the second best winning percentage for a single season at ever Virginia.
Moore finished third in the 2004 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships and was ranked No.1 in the country for most of the season and was the top seed at 141-pounds at the NCAA Championships. He was named the ACC Wrestler of the Week four times and had taken first place or won all seven regular season events/competitions he competed in and won his match at the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) All-Star Classic.
Moore began his wrestling career at Penn State (1999-2003) where he won a combined 125 matches (including one red-shirt season) after going 125-42 over four years of competition. In 2002-03, he set the NCAA record for most matches competed in (63) and set a PSU school record for most wins a single season after going 54-9 during an All-American season for the Nittany Lions.
He and his wife, Sherry, reside in Charlottesville.
