Two-Time Big Sky Moore Looks for Big Yards


(PALM SPRINGS) — The SoCal Coyotes — in the market for a veteran big-target wide receiver and depth at power running back — got both this morning when two-time All-Big Sky Skyler Moore of Northern Arizona signed with the two-time champions.

Moore was voted All-Big Sky Conference twice after catching 68 balls for 935 yards and 12 touchdowns as a wideout and tight end at Northern Arizona. Since, the 6’3″, 232-pound Moore also has worked out of the S-position in arena ball, where he averaged 3.5 yards a carry. He ran 4.69 at a recent pro combine.

“I’m blessed to join the Coyotes,” said Moore, a certified social science school teacher, who holds his degree in sociology. “I took my time choosing the Coyotes organization. Everything here is consistent with my beliefs and what I want from a team and an opportunity. I can’t wait to get on the field and earn the respect of my new teammates.”

In their Run ‘n’ Shoot offense, the Coyotes expect Moore to play slot, S-back and possibly work outside.

“Skyler presents a lot of problems to a defense,” said head coach J David Miller. “Our coaches loved his film, and how he adapted to the indoor game by honing his skills as a blocker and runner.

“He’s great in space out of the backfield. In the slot, he’s a disciplined route runner with a big body and great leverage. As a back, he runs downhill. As a blocker, he puts his hat on the threat. He’s a really good fit for us, and with his maturity, work ethic, and character, we see him as a great complement to our core veterans.”

The Coyotes mantra of ‘faith, family and football’ resonated with Moore. When he isn’t snagging passes over the middle or breaking off tackle, he loves working with youth. He grew up in a crime-ridden neighborhood in Los Angeles, before his mother Theresa moved the family 20 miles east to Montclair. There Moore was voted team captain at Montclair High, and he rode his football skills to a college education.

Soon to be married to fiancé Amber Jones, Moore met his future bride while serving as a certified residential counselor in a group home, where she worked as a therapist.

“I just want to help people, some how, some way,” Moore says. “Children, adults, elderly, it doesn’t matter. Fear has you compare the size of your problem to your ability. Faith has you compare the size of your problem to God.”

Moore will meet his current and potential Coyotes teammates at open tryouts on Sunday, March 16, at the team’s plush Desert Princess Golf & Country Club training facilities.

Tryouts will start promptly at 3 p.m.
