All-American: Derland Moore

Rufus Alexander

Derland Moore, DT - 1972
Derland Moore was named to the Associated Press and Gold Sheet All-America teams. During his career, he had several huge plays in big games. Against Nebraska in 1972, he blindsided Nebraska's QB, causing a fumble that set up the winning field goal.

He was named National Lineman of the Week after the Texas game, when he blocked a punt that was recovered for a touchdown. He scored a touchdown himself in that game when he recovered a fumble in the end zone. Moore was named all-conference in 1971 and '72.

He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the second round in 1973.
