you are wrong my friend. Booby Moore is (was) NCAA 120 yard hurdle champ for the U of Oregon (1963 I believe), changed his name, became Vikings star receiver, married to Felecia Rashad, became a tv analyst..
I know perfectly well who Bouncy Moore is -- contemporary of Ralph Boston. No relation to Bobby Moore/ Ahmad Rashad

Uhhh, no. Absolutely incorrect. Wrong. Not right. False.

I believe it is Rod Woodson, not Charles in the list above.

as gm notes, very wrong.

Bobby Moore didn't graduate from high school until '67.

The only Moore who ever made an NCAA high hurdle final was Cal's Tom Moore in 1935. (no Rashad—or Ahmad for that matter—has ever made the final)

Bouncy Moore (born 1951) and Ralph Boston (born 1939) weren't quite contemporaries, although Boston's long career almost made it so. Boston last made the U.S. Rankings in '68, Moore's first appearance wasn't until '70.

Quite possibly, you have confused Moore with Mel Renfro, who was second in the 1962 NCAA meet, to Oregon teammate Jerry Tarr and is in the pro football hall of fame.

Booby MAY of Rice won the NCAA in 1964 (not a football player).

For me Bouncy Moore and Ralph Boston are linked, but not from competing together. My memory is of the CBS telecasts of T&F in the early 70's with Boston doing field event commentary, during which an attempt by Bouncy would be described by Ralph as a "Gooooood jump!"

Looks like both 2013's HS co-leaders in the 110H (Marlon Humphrey and Tony Brown, 13.38 as juniors), both 5-star recruited cornerbacks, are going to Alabama.

Also looks like Tony Brown enrolled early at 'Bama, and has already run his first indoor 42" hurdle race for the Tide ...

Hope to see both of them with successful football and track careers at 'Bama.

GH. The list of NCAA high hurdler finalists correctly lists renaissance man Bernie Casey in 1960, but gives his school as Miami of Ohio. It was Bowling Green.

T&FN - thanks for posting/recognizing American Jr. Records for Artie Burns and Sasha Wallace - didn't realize their accomplishments...
http://www.trackandfieldnews.com/index.php/display-article?arId=96450

Question - is Wayne Davis American or T&T? He's listed as AJr for 39" indoor American record in T&FN's list at 7.60 (went to high school here) although on all-time lists Donovan Robertson ran 7.57 in 2012?

Artie Burns running well at Miami, Tony Brown getting into the swing of things at 'Bama, and looks like Marlon Humprey will also run track for Bama..

Hope to see them all compete outdoors as well...
