Prior to last Friday’s football game, Freeport junior quarterback Gabe Moore was recognized for his athletic accomplishments.

Each year the All-Sports Association selects the top male and female athlete for two county areas as their Athlete of the Year.

Friday night, Dr. Jim Brechin and Bernard Johnson of the All-Sports Association presented the Male Athlete of the Year Award to Moore in recognition of his accomplishments on the athletic fields in multiple sports.

Moore was first team All-State as a sophomore in football and Offensive Player of the Year and a Dandy Dozen Selection. He was All Area and a leading scorer in basketball. Moore was the gold medal state champion in the decathlon and silver medalist at the National Championships held in Texas this past summer.
