Springtown, Texas is home to TCU commitment Bryson Burtnett who is in the 2013 class. Another name to watch for the Porcupines is 2014 signal caller Colby Moore, who is already putting up big numbers this season.

The Springtown (TX) Porcupines picked up their first win of the 2012 season last Friday with a 37-30 win over Decatur. While most eyes were likely focused on Springtown tight end Bryson Burtnett, a TCU commit, prior to the game, it was 2014 quarterback Colby Moore who stole the show.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder accounted completed 20-of-27 passes for 318 yards and 4 touchdowns. For good measure, he added another 65 yards on the ground, including a 50-yard scoring run.

For Moore, who has received interest from programs such as Texas A&M, Kansas, Rice, Colorado, UTSA, TCU and Utah, said he was glad his team came out with the victory. However, after seeing a 37-10 lead evaporate, he knows his team needs to finish games better.

“I’m just excited that we got our first win of the year,” Moore said. “We did a great job playing as a group. But, we didn’t do a good job coming out in the second half so we’re going to have to improve on that starting with practice this week.”

Moore, who now has 541 passing yards with 7 touchdown passes in two games, said he felt proud of his performance but just as he mentioned for his team to get better, he feels he needs to finish games as well.

“I think I did a well job, but like I said we have some areas to improve on,” the modest Moore said. “We’ve got to perform better in the second half, we’re going to work on it and do better next week.”

More programs have started to show interest in Moore and the Springtown quarterback says Boise State’s interest in him is heating up.

“I’ve got a few letters from Boise State and a few from Florida State,” Moore finished.
