Adrian Moore began his senior football season at War Memorial Stadium and will cap his career there.

The running back was the only Arkansas-Pine Bluff player selected for the inaugural Players All-Star Classic, to be held Feb. 4. The game features players from across the country who are likely to be selected in the later rounds of the NFL draft and will be played in a North vs. South format.

Like many college all-stars, Moore is hoping for an opportunity to be drafted by an NFL team.

I most definitely plan on doing that, said Moore, a former White Hall standout. At least Ill get a chance to show what I can do. This game makes my chances a little better.

Moore averaged 5.2 yards per carry and finished with 683 yards and two touchdowns in helping the Golden Lions earn their first winning season since 2006 at 6-5. The Lions would have made the SWAC championship game for the first time since that year as well had eventual champ Grambling State lost to Southern in the regular-season finale.

But Moore gave the Lions some big games during the season, rushing for 130 or more yards three times. He scored his only two touchdowns in the season finale against Texas Southern and also had 201 receiving yards with a season-high 82 in a win at Prairie View A&M in September.

After the Classic, Moore plans to do a pro day and combine, but is not sure where for either one. For now, hes happy to be an all-star.

Im definitely looking for this opportunity and Im thankful I have this opportunity, Moore said.
