DALLAS —





As the old saying goes, "All good things must come to and end."

 

Former Bullard High School standout Charlie Moore concluded his collegiate playing days as an Oklahoma State Cowboy last week when the Pokes lost, 48-45, to Missouri in the At&T Cotton Bowl, which was played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington in front of a crowd of nearly 73,000.

 

Oklahoma State ended its season with a 10-3 record, while SEC East champion Missouri finished 12-2.

 

Moore, a slot receiver, caught four balls for 53 yards in the game, including one grab that covered 26 yards.

Moore was a highly decorated quarterback at Bullard, before being converted to a receiver at Oklahoma State.

 

Having played in each of the Cowboys' 13 games this past season, Moore hauled in 35 catches for 468 yards and five touchdowns.

He averaged 13.4 yards per catch and ranked as the Cowboys' fourth-leading pass catcher.

 

In 2012, his junior season, the quick-footed Moore tallied 35 receptions totaling 542 yards and six touchdowns.

 

Moore, the son of Scott and Anita Moore, also got the job done academically while in Stillwater, where he was named as First Team Academic All-Big 12 choice.

 

Prior to signing with Oklahoma State, Moore said that it was one of his life-long dreams to be able to play in the Big 12 Conference.

 

Moore turned his dream into a reality.
