PFN: How long have you played football?

I’ve played football my whole life ever since I was four.

PFN: Why did you choose to commit to the Hokies? 

I chose to commit to Virginia Tech because it felt like the best place for me. I built a strong relationship with the o-line coach and my brother plays football too here.

PFN: Why commit early?Braelin Moore 

I chose to commit early because I felt like there was no point in waiting. I knew that I wanted to go here and felt I should just make it official.

PFN: Who was your biggest influence at Va Tech, who recruited you?

The biggest influencer was definitely the o-line coach! We had great talks and he definitely persuaded me to commit to the Hokies.

PFN: What are they getting in a player like you?

They are getting a player who is gonna be the hardest worker in the room. Someone who’s gonna give max effort every play, every rep, and dominate the opposing team.

PFN: What was the recruiting process like for you?

The recruiting process was good for me, it was slow at first but it heated up and I got the offers I wanted. I’m happy I committed to VT.

PFN: How did the Covid 19 pandemic affect your decision?

I don’t think covid really affected my decision at all.

PFN: What position were you recruited for?

I’m being recruited for guard/center.

PFN: Do you know what you’d like to study?

I do not know what I want to study yet.

PFN: What role did your parents play in your decision?

They played a big role, I wanted to make it easy for my parents to come watch our games and they love VT.

PFN: What do you think is the most exciting thing about the Va tech program?

I think the most exciting part of VT is when they run out of the tunnel on a big game and the stadium erupts!!

PFN: What are you most looking forward to while playing for the Hokies? 

I’m looking forward to winning championships with the Hokies.

PFN: Tell everyone out there in the Hokie football world something they’d never know about you until you told them:

Up until middle school, I was a QB.

PFN: Who is the person who most influenced you in your football career?

My dad.

PFN: What is it you’d like all your high school teammates and fans to know about your decision that you might have a hard time saying in person?

I don’t think I have anything I would have a hard time saying. I’m just excited to be a Hokie!!
