General Manager Kevin Black was also a coach at the time Moore played and was able to see him play firsthand. Moore was a tall kid as a youngster, "I remember having to field questions from parents about his age due to his size", Magnia said. He continued, "When he became apart of the Texans, I knew what we had in him as a player and as a person. He will be missed a great deal."
Moore played high school football at Yoakum High School where he had 13 solo tackles, 24 total tackles averaging 2.7 tackles per game in 9 games. At 6'4" and 275 lbs, he had the size wanted in an offensive lineman.

Defense Gets Point Crazy
-March 10, 2013
The Victoria Texans defense took to the field with one thing on their mind, "Win the game at all costs!" Win they did as the Texans won over the Mathis Lions, 36-0.

Offensively, the Texans balanced themselves out very well. Travis Warrick didn't have a 300 yard performance like last week but you couldn't blame him. Not only did Warrick have to worry about the Lions defense but a 40 mph wind which blew across the game field for all of the game. Warrick did have a pretty good day passing going 13 of 29 for 119 yards with 2 touchdown passes and 1 interception. Warrick threw both TD passes to Williams. Williams caught a short pass from Warrick to get the scoring started. Then Warrick took a QB keeper and ran it for 80 yards to give the Texans a halftime lead of 22-0.
The running game got themselves on track as they accumulated 179 yards on the day. Ron Thomas, Dusty Hernandez, Warrick, and Aaron Huntley all carried the rock for Victoria.
Defensively, not only did they get on the scoreboard but they held the Lions offense to a total of 97 yards for the game. The Lions also had 5 interceptions and had 1 fumble. To see the game summary, click here.

The Texas Ducks came to town on January 26th to take on the Victoria Texans. The ducks were hoping for a good, close game but Victoria came out strong with a 26-6 lead at halftime. Travis Warrick threw three passes in the half. One to Colby Wilson and two to converted from QB to WR Keith Hradek, and Josh McClure. Brandon Williams added a score early in the third quarter and McClure added one more to his total at the end of the game. The Texans won 42-6 and finished the preseason at 1-1.
