Skyy Moore has always had the mentality of an NFL player, says college head coach


(610 Sports) – Western Michigan University head coach Tim Lester recruited Skyy Moore out of high school but he didn't know what position he was recruiting him for, he just knew that he wanted Moore on his team from the moment he watched him play. Joining 610 Sports' The Drive, Lester was asked about Moore's potential coming out of high school and if he saw a guy who could one day play in the NFL?

"I mean, I think you see the NFL toughness," said Lester. "The moment I saw him play, I wanted him on my team. He's a kid that played, when we recruited him, he did not come in as a DB or as a wideout or anything. I have two scholarships a year that are mine as the head coach, head coach discretionary ones and I think just as an athlete a guy, you know, that I think is a great kid, a tough kid and I'm now exactly sure what he is yet, but I know he's something and that was the scholarship I used on him. I really thought he was gonna be a corner, that's why he wears number 24 and then late in the summer one of our wideouts leaves and we moved him to wideout and he was All-Conference three years in a row. Never really played wideout, his high school film he played quarterback at Shady Side Academy."

"I just knew he was tough, knew he wanted to work and he was fun to be around and wasn't gonna be denied," said Lester. "He just wants to get better everyday and he did. He got faster and stronger, he became an NFL player but mentality-wise, he's been one since the moment I met him."
