During this football season Laramie High School played Natrona County High School. During the game, wide receiver Maxx Moore was hit and went down.

“I heard a pop and I knew that something was up,” Moore said. ” I thought I was going to be fine because I could walk on my leg perfectly fine.”

For an entire week Moore walked on his leg just hoping that he could finish his football season and play his junior year of basketball for the Plainsmen. However, an MRI gave devastating news. He had a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee.

To Moore, this news was heart wrenching. “When I was told that I had a torn ACL and meniscus the first thought that raced through my head was that I am going to miss my basketball season.”

It was tough for Moore to miss out on this basketball season. The team had been working hard and building for the past few years and this is the year they are going to be very successful.

“It is hard to not be a part of a team that is going to have an exciting season and be successful,” Moore said about the season.

The boy’s team is now already 3-1 this season after an opening tournament in Casper, WY. Now they are ranked second in the state.

Moore is optimistic and involved with the team. He is travelling with the team and managing. Moore will be able to attend all of the games and support his fellow teammates from the bench.

Moore will be having surgery in eight weeks and recently had his knee brace removed.

Three days a week, Moore goes to physical therapy and works on getting his knee healed and ready to play on again. With his injury, it is supposed to take up to 6 months to heal but he is recovering quickly.

It is going to be very tough 6 months for Moore, but he will be back and ready to be all state point guard next year.
