Salina Central’s Jameer Moore – Poll Winner Presented By Nex-Tech

By Blake Chadwick

Salina Central’s Jameer Moore might be a KU football commit, but that isn’t deterring him from running his final track and field season. Always being a fast athlete, Moore and his family knew he was going to be really fast when he was around eight years old.

“I was running in my backyard, and my mom and grandpa said I was really fast,” Moore said. “She took a video of me running and sent it to my dad. He said I ran fast like a jet.”

From there, Moore joined the family trade of being a sprinter and competed in the 4×1, 400, and triple jump for most of his career.

The senior has been named all-league since his freshman year and finished eighth place in the state in the triple jump during his sophomore year. That same year, he also won the triple jump during his league meet.

Now for Moore, his jumping days are over as he prepares his body for the college football grind and tries to get as fast as possible before he steps onto campus in Lawrence.

“A personal goal of mine is to achieve a 49 or 48 second for the 400,” Moore said.

The senior also knows that leaving the program better than it was when you first got there is also important, so he has made a point to be a good senior leader as well.

“As a senior, the coaches look towards a lot for describing drills or any sort of help towards newcomers,” Moore said. “I also make coming into high school track less scary of a transition.”
