Few football players are blessed with the size, speed, and talent that DeKorien Moore is. At 6’0, 165 pounds, DeKorien runs a 4.8 second 40 yard dash at only 13 years old. He has true track speed, precise route running ability, and a football IQ beyond his years.

Currently, DeKorien plays football out of Duncanville Texas, offensively as a wide receiver, and at the free safety position on the defensive side of the ball. Even with his eye popping athletic numbers, DeKorien is not satisfied relying on his elite natural skill. His disciplined and academic approach to the game has allowed him to run precise routes as he works daily to master the footwork and body positioning the modern wide receiver requires. Defensively, this high football IQ and knowledge of the opposing side of the ball allows him to read offensive schemes like a true pro. 

With a knack for clutch plays, and never taking a single snap off, DeKorien has already received his first offer to play football at the collegiate level from the University of Kansas. If DeKorien maintains his professional like work ethic, and continues to develop and study the game of football, he will surely be a household name
