Interboro senior goalie Adam Moore has committed to play Division III lacrosse at Elizabethtown College.
Moore was an Honorable mention all-Phillylacrosse.com choice as a junior who played club lacrosse for the Duke’s Lacrosse Club.
Moore, whose father is a third-grade teacher, plans to major in Elementary Education;
“I had great teachers at Norwood School and they had a positive impact on me,” said Moore, who has a 4.0 GPA and is a member of the National Honors Society.
“I’m good with kids and I’m patient. I just like teaching kids new things and helping them to become better people.”
Moore has coached youth lacrosse (five years) and youth soccer in Interboro. This summer he is working as a camp counselor at the Ridley YMCA and he has worked at Premier Lacrosse camps.
Moore felt a good connection with the Elizabethtown staff and coach Terry Corcoran as well as the players. This year the Blue Jays went 12-4 overall and 10-1 in the Middle Atlantic Conference, but were upset by Widener in the MAC semifinals.
Elizabethtown already has a strong Philly connection. Thirteen players on the 2010 Blue Jays’ squad were from Philly: sophomore Mike McGraw and freshmen Sean McGraw, Nick Thompson and Nick Antosh of Strath Haven; seniors Chris Day and Jon Day and sophomore Sean O’Neill of Bishop Shanahan; freshmen Donnie Krausse and Kyle Lord of Sun Valley; freshman Brent Antosh of Holy Ghost Prep; junior Brian Schaaf of West Chester East; sophomore Dan Patton of Penncrest; and junior Robert Zambrana of Upper Darby.
“Elizabethtown is a close-knit community, with about 2,000 students, and has a hard-working team,” said Moore, who served as the student representative on the school board at Interboro. “I liked coach Prince and I am really excited to start.”
Moore, a four-year starter at Interboro, said the Bucs showed much improvement the past two seasons under new coach Justin McQuaid. Interboro went 7-11 this year after winning just four games in 2009.
“I feel like the 2010 season was a building year and that we started something with coach McQuaid over the past two years,” said Moore, who credits Interboro youth coach Rich Sim and assistant varsity coach Tom Davis for his development. “In 10 years we may look back at the program and know that we helped build it up.”
