FOOTBALL: Four Leopards sign National Letters of Intent

GAINESVILLE — A quartet of Leopard football players signed the dotted line on Wednesday to play at the next level.

Moore, wide receiver and defensive back, caught 40 passes for 699 yards and 10 touchdowns on offense. On defense, he had 15 tackles, three interceptions and three pass break ups. Moore was first-team All-Cooke County.
