OMAHA, NEBRASKA: The Grace University men's basketball team is proud to announce the addition of Jason Moore, a 6'2" shooting guard, to their roster for the upcoming 2017-18 season. Jason Moore Jr., the son of Shelia and Jason Moore, Sr., is from Los Angeles, California, and is transferring to Grace University from Lassen College in Susanville, California. In his spare time, Moore enjoys weight lifting and working out. He plans to major in communication. Moore says that he chose Grace University specifically because of the history of the school; he also wants to continue his education and playing basketball.
Moore graduated from Cleveland High School in Los Angeles, California, in 2013. In high school, Moore was a 3-sport athlete; he participated not only in basketball but also in football and track. He played Varsity all four years and averaged 20 points per game during his senior season of basketball. Moore also received the honor of being a starter on the 1st Team in the All League All Star game, a game in which he scored 35 points. As a freshman in college, Moore played for Glendale College, where he averaged 6 points per game and received 1st Team All Freshman honors in the 2013-14 season. Moore went on to play for Lassen Community College during the 2016-17 season, where he averaged 8.2 points per game and 2.3 assists per game in 24 games played. He had a season-high of 22 points in the last game of the regular season against Butte College. Moore also received an Honorable Mention during his time at Lassen.
"Jason has shown a ton of determination in getting to Grace and it speaks a lot about his character," says Coach Kliewer. "I believe God has him here for a reason, and I'm excited to see him grow as a person and as a leader. On the court, he has the potential to make an immediate impact because of the experience he brings to the team. He is anxious to get here and do what he loves and we are very happy to have him!"
