Matt Moore’s accomplishments on the wrestling mat speak loud and clear.
The Apalachee High School junior placed sixth at state as a freshman — an almost unheard of accomplishment according to coach Jim Stoudenmire — and then won a state championship at 220 as a sophomore.
Now Moore is set to return to the state’s biggest wrestling stage and anything less than another first-place medal would, in all honesty, be a shock.
Termed a “monster on the mat,” by his coach, Moore has steamrolled his competition in 2012-2013 with a 44-1 record. His only loss came in a match in which Stoudenmire decided to default to prevent a possible injury. Moore was way ahead on points at the time and was likely a move or two away from winning on a technical fall.
