Greg Moore

Athletic Director/Head Football Coach

Entering his 30th year as a member of the FPD family, Greg Moore has been an integral part of the Vikings’ success through the years.

Moore is beginning his 20th season as head coach of the FPD football team. During that time, Moore has seen his teams win GISA Region Championships in 2000, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007. The Vikings also made it to the GISA State Championship game in 2001, 2004 and 2005. Moore was head coach when the Vikings made the switch from the GISA to GHSA four years ago and helped guide the team to the GHSA state playoffs the past five years.

His career record entering into the 2016 season stands at 127-76. He is the winningest coach in FPD football program history.

In 2016, Moore’s Vikings picked up key regular season victories over Howard High School, Brookstone and Hawkinsville.

FPD would advance to the GHSA Class-A Private State Tournament as the no. 17 seed and defeated no. 16 seeded Aquinas High School to earn the program’s second GHSA playoff win. The Vikings fell in the Sweet 16 at ELCA.

In 2015, Moore and his coaching staff rallied the Vikings to a 6-5 finish and earned the program’s fifth straight strip the GHSA Class-A Playoffs.

At 2-4 on Oct. 9, the Vikings won four straight to earn a playoff bid, falling to Prince Avenue in the first round.

In 2014, Moore’s Vikings started the season at 3-0 that included a thrilling 26-25 overtime win over Howard High School. It was the first time a Bibb County public and private school played since the 1960’s.

Other key wins in 2014 for Moore’s squad included Wilkinson County, Twiggs County, and GMC Prep.

With a 7-3 record at the end of the season, including a 4-2 region mark, the Vikings were given an at-large bid by the GHSA to Class-A State Playoffs, eventually falling in the first round at Prince Avenue 53-30.

The 2013 campaign saw Moore’s squad finish at 6-5 overall and 5-2 in Region-7. The Vikings rattled off an impressive 28-18 against Pace Academy on September 20. The win would prove to be a turning point on the season, as FPD would win six of its next seven contests.

FPD entered the 2013 playoffs as the no. 13 seed, traveling to Savannah to face Calvary Day School. In a back-and-forth shootout, the Vikings fell 42-35 late in the fourth quarter to end the year.

In 2012, Moore’s squad made the GHSA State Playoffs for the second consecutive year and won the school’s first ever playoff game as a member of the league, a 49-33 win at Brookstone on Nov. 23. The skipper also earned his 100th career victory as head coach of the Red & Black, a 45-8 decision at Warren County on Nov. 2.

Prior to taking the reins of the Viking football program, Moore served as an assistant coach for 10 years, during which he was offensive coordinator for five years and defensive coordinator twice. Currently his record as the head coach for the Vikings stands at 120-72 entering into the 2016 season, a winning percentage of .625.

Moore is no stranger to FPD, graduating in 1984 where he was an All-Region baseball player under former Viking head softball and baseball coach Jimmy Turner. Moore then attended the University of Alabama, where he served as student manager for the Crimson Tide football team. Head Coach Bill Curry awarded Moore a full scholarship the final two years as Student Manager.

Coach Moore also served as the head of the FPD boys basketball program beginning in 1995, following the footsteps of former head coach Philip McLeroy. During Moore’s tenure as basketball coach, the Vikings won six region titles (1997, ’98, 2000, ’02, ’03, ’04, ’05) and two state championships (2000, ’04). Moore also led the Vikings to seven Final Four appearances.

He and his wife, Kim, have two children: Kaylee and Jackson, both of whom attend FPD. He enjoys movies, dining out and golf in his spare time.
