Titus Moore Has Record Breaking Senior Year



Samford Track & Field signee Titus Moore was named the FPD Male Athlete of the Year Monday after concluding his high school athletic career Saturday at the GHSA State Track & Field Championship meet in Rome where continued his record breaking senior year setting new FPD records in the 300m Hurdles (38.47) and Long Jump (22-07.50).

Earlier this track season Moore, not only broke the previous 110m Hurdles record previously held by current University of Georgia Track & Field member Jonathan Raines, but he broke his own record twice before the conclusion of the season running a 13.80, which is the fifth fastest in the nation according to Milesplit.  In addition to the new records Moore was able to claim this spring, he was also a member of the 4x400m Relay Team in 2015 that holds the record of 42.27.

Coach Dick Frame, who has been coaching hurdlers at FPD for almost 40 years may have said it best, “I’ve had 25 state champions in the hurdles, and Titus is by far and away the best we’ve ever seen,” coach Frame said. “And the best in middle Georgia for that matter.”

Prior to the start of the track season Moore set new records in the fall as a member of the FPD Football Team. He led all of the State Class-A-Receivers in receptions, yards, yards-per-catch, yards-per-game, and TD Receptions. In the FPD record book Moore tied and surpassed several receiving categories that Alex Gainey had held for over a decade. He broke Gainey’s single-game reception record of 12 with 14 receptions against Lincoln County in the region-cross-over game.  Moore, also would haul in 15 touchdown receptions breaking another of Gainey’s single season records. He tied Gainey’s single season reception record of 76 before the conclusion of the season.

Moore’s list of accomplishments is a long one on the athletic fields, but if you spoke to him you may not have a clue how special of an athlete he is. “Titus will never spend much time telling anyone how good he is – he doesn’t have to, said Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Greg Moore. “I can’t explain how privileged we’ve been as coaches to get to coach him.”

As the final chapter on his high school athletic career has been completed, it is the start of a new chapter for him as he continues his athletic career in Birmingham, Alabama next fall with Samford University. Only time will tell how special of an athlete and individual Moore will become over the next several years but one thing is for sure, Viking Nation will be watching and cheering.
