For 13 years, Moore was a standout player for the Miami Dolphins. Moore was a third round pick, played in Super Bowls XVII and XIX, started in the 1977 Pro-Bowl and stands 30th on the all-time career receiving touchdowns list with 74. In 1984 he was name the NFL “Man of the Year,” an honor bestowed on the player who gives outstanding service to his community. He then earned the Byron White Humanitarian Award in 1986 for his service to his team, community and country.
Since retiring from the NFL, Moore continues to dedicate his service to all communities. As the executive director of the Pro Bowl Clinic, he brings NFL stars and children together for fun, football and education. He also has made several appearances on Molokai talking to high school students about his career and offering advice on how to succeed in life.
Joining Moore will be Vince Manuwai, a free agent who played most recently with the Atlanta Falcons, Mercel Reece from the Oakland Raiders and Samantha Ruiz, Miami Dolphins cheerleader.
