Dinos land #CFC100 recruit (VIDEO)

British Columbia linebacker joins #CWUAA team’s 2016 class.

It was a tough decision, but #CFC100 Charlie Moore finally made it.

Recently, the 6’3, 195 pound linebacker from Tsawwassen, British Columbia committed to University of Calgary Dinos.  Moore will join the team for the 2016 CWUAA season.

For his part, Moore’s final two came down to the Dinos and Western Mustangs.  After quite a lengthy deliberation, he opted for the Dinos for a specific reason.

“I had a really tough decision between Calgary and Western,” recalled the defensive standout.  “The deciding factor for me between Western and Calgary was distance, because I knew if I went to Western I wouldn’t be able to return as often on holidays and such due to the cost of the flights.”

Furthermore, Moore was sold on the Dinos during his official visit as he felt comfortable with both the academic and football aspects.

“I found when I was on my visit that everyone I met seemed to be very genuine and I really enjoyed the locker room environment that Calgary has to offer,” elaborated the #CFC100 recruit.  “I also found that Calgary would be a really good fit academically for me as I plan to enrol in commerce at Haskayne.”

“Calgary also has a very long history of being a successful team and that also helped me lean towards going there.”

This commitment was a silver lining in what has been a challenging year for Moore.  Upon completion of his training last summer, the linebacker sustained a partial tear of his rotator cuff.  Consequently, he had to miss half of his final campaign with South Delta Sun Devils of the British Columbia High School Football Association (BCHSFA).

Despite only playing half of the season, the #CFC100 recruit appeared as though he didn’t miss a beat when he returned back.  He registered 45 tackles, recorded a sack and has a fumble recovery in the remaining games he dressed for with the Sun Devils.

During the 2015 BCHSFA ‘AAA’ Playoffs, Moore led the league in tackles with 27 in just two games (including 17 in a single game).

The defensive standout helped the Sun Devils win their first ever ‘AAA’ Provincial Championship in 2014. In addition to linebacker, Moore has also played at both the defensive end and slotback positions.

With Moore’s commitment, the Dinos have two #CFC100 recruits.  The other is 2015 ranked defensive back Joshua Quarles.
