C. Adam Toney Athlete of the Week – Jay Moore


Beckley, WV (WOAY) – Jay Moore has been a key contributor for Greater Beckley boys basketball since his freshman year, with the junior continuing to play at a high level in 2017-18.

Moore led the Crusaders to a second straight Class A Region 3 Section 2 title last week, scoring 25 points against Greenbrier West and 27 against Mount View. Greater Beckley overcame a 15-point deficit in the second half to win the sectional championship against the Golden Knights.

Moore is one of multiple players who have been a part of the program for multiple years, a veteran factor that the Crusaders believe could lead to a win Wednesday when they host Pocahontas County in a regional co-final; the Crusaders beat the Warriors in the regular season.

Greater Beckley is seeking its first Class A state tournament appearance since 2015.
