About The CBS4 Nat Moore Trophy
The CBS4 Nat Moore Trophy was created by CBS4 to recognize the top high school football player in Miami-Dade, Broward, or Monroe County. The trophy honors the local football legacy of Pro Bowl wide receiver Nat Moore, a native Floridian who was a Miami Edison Senior High Red Raider before going on to become a star running back at the University of Florida. He was inducted into the UF Athletic Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great" in 1978.
Moore was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in 1974. Over his 13-year playing career, he recorded 510 receptions for 7546 receiving yards and 74 touchdowns. He ranks in the top three players in Dolphins history in each of those statistics.
In 1984, the NFL voted Moore as "Man of the Year" for outstanding service to his community and he received the Byron White Humanitarian Award in 1986. His post-retirement career is filled with humanitarian work and philanthropy. In 1998, he created the Nat Moore Foundation, which works with disadvantaged kids in Miami-Dade County in efforts to make sure they receive the best education possible. He is currently the Dolphins' Senior Vice President of Special Projects and Alumni Relations.
The CBS4 Nat Moore Trophy is presented by FPL.
