Student-Athlete: Danny Moore
COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WYTV) - Crestview senior Danny Moore knows how to light up a room.
He's a special talent for the Rebels, with a great personality. Danny's on track to graduate with 11 varsity letters in five different sports. Plus, he's a top-notch student, earning him the honor of our "33 Student-Athlete of the Week".
"Winning is very important to me," said Moore. "And bettering myself is even more important."
Danny is always up for a challenge. He's a versatile athlete at Crestview and State qualifier at the indoor track meet earlier this year. Danny's a big part of the relay teams and is team captain for the second straight season.
"I think my main role on the track team is keeping everybody loose. because like I said, track is torture. when you think about it, running in circles is pretty torturous. so track is all about having fun.
Danny's passion and positive outlook carried over to the football field, where he was an All-County safety. He helped lead Crestview to two playoff appearances in the past three seasons.
"In football, I just poured everything I could into every play because I just wanted to win," said Moore.
"And for track, I mean it's 100%, because I want to win and I want to be one of those guys that they're like, man he was pretty crazy."
Off the field of play, Danny is a leader in the classroom. He ranks in the top 10 of his class with a 3.92 GPA. He also serves as the school board's student ambassador. His big goal after high school, one day is to become a Planetary Geologist.
"Well if I can't get good grades, I can't do sports...it's kind of how it works. So I have to put school first or sports wouldn't happen."
