In addition to anchoring his team’s midfield the past few seasons, Moore has also played a vital role in taking set pieces for the Spartans. This past fall he was recognized for his work on the field by being named to the Northern Hoosier Conference Second Team.

“We are very excited that Alex will continue his career at Huntington,” says Coach Lawson. “He is a hardnosed holding mid who reads the game well and has the ability to distribute and generate offense.”

Along with helping lead Homestead to two conference championships, Moore has also gained valuable experience at the ODP level playing for the Fort Wayne Sport Club. Homestead Coach Paco Castillo said Moore “has the ability to do great things at the collegiate level impacting the game with his vision and ability to find his teammates.”

Moore, a business management major, is the son of Duane and Ann Moore of Fort Wayne, Ind. 
The Huntington University Foresters compete in 14 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 53 NAIA All-America honors and 187 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S.News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
