ORLANDO, Fla. (January 25, 2003) - East Tennessee State senior wide receiver Cecil Moore (Morristown, Tenn.) scored the first points of the 2003 Rotary Gridiron Classic College All-Star Game as he helped Team USA to a 20-17 victory over Team Florida Saturday. Moore, who was playing in front of a national audience as the game was televised on ESPN2, caught a seven-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter from Oklahoma quarterback Nate Hybl to give Team USA an early 6-0 advantage. It was Moore's lone catch of the contest before leaving the game with a hand laceration. Moore had 44 receptions for 682 yards and seven touchdowns in 2002 for the Buccaneers, leading the team in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns for the third straight season. Saturday's all-star game featured athletes from the state of Florida matching up against athletes from the rest of the United States. The game is one of six signature events produced by Florida Citrus Sports annually. Proceeds from the game benefit the Rotary Foundation and the Miami Project's national fundraising arm, the Buoniconti Fund to Cure Spinal Cord Paralysis. Over the last four years, the game has generated nearly $1 million for the Buoniconti project. Since its inception in 1999, the Rotary Gridiron Classic College All-Star Game has allowed 360 players from around the nation to showcase their talents in front of NFL scouts for a chance to play on Sundays. More than 300 of the players have been drafted or signed NFL contracts.
