Eagles Head Coach Gregg Baker says Moore "got on me the first couple times we talked, because I kept calling him, 'Yes sir.' And he said, 'Coach, you're not supposed to call me "yes. I'm supposed to call you 'Yes, sir."'[...]
Says Baker, "Alan came to us back in the spring and said, 'My story is showing these kids there's no reason to give up on your dreams, and there's no reason not to continue trying to get your education."
Moore lives in the dorms, eats in the cafeteria and attends class, proving, observes "Early Show on Saturday Morning" co-anchor Russ Mitchell, he has the mind, the heart and foot to compete with players young enough to be his grandchildren.
