2014 quarterback Colby Moore, of Springtown, Texas, will be traveling more than 1,600 miles through…
Top 2014 QB Visits The Blue
"It was great," he said. "At Boise, you get treated in a first class way. You're just another recruit at some of the other schools I've been to, but the coaching staff at Boise was always there to make sure I'm having a good time."
"Coach Smith took some time to talk to me," he stated. "He's a super nice guy. I thought it meant a lot that he took some time out of his meetings to sit down and talk to me."
"My mom and dad went up there with me," said Moore. "My mom loved it because of all of the education stuff. The funny thing is that my dad actually played pro baseball there for two years. He said he enjoyed his time up there."
Once again, being able to sit down with Head Coach Chris Petersen was one of the highlights of Moore's trip to The Blue.
"On Sunday, we went up to the press box and talked to Coach Petersen for a bit," he said. "He's a great guy. It was great how he took the time to sit down with us, answer questions, and treat me like a regular recruit. That really meant a lot."
"Coach Petersen is all about academics," said Moore. "He tells his players that they have to sit in the front row and makes sure that they're always paying attention."
And the famous blue turf at Bronco Stadium?
"I loved it," he said. "The funny thing is the green turf didn't look right when I got back," he added.
Moore and his teammates are heading into the state playoffs with a 6-4 record. The first round begins this Friday and he says they'll need to be at their best if they want to beat Vernon and advance further.
"We've got Vernon in the first round," he said. "They're athletic and a very good football team. We're going to have to play well if we want to beat them."
So, what does Colby Moore (6'1, 190) bring to the gridiron?
"The thing I hear most is that I'm very accurate with the football," he said. "I also have the ability to run when I need to. I'm not just a pocket passer."
Through ten games, Moore has 1,300 yards passing, 18 TD passes, and 6 rushing TDs.
