On Friday, one of Class A’s 1,000-yard rushers was in Lincoln for a private workout with members of Nebraska’s coaching staff.
2022 running back/athlete Micah Moore of Fremont said his workout, which was run by Huskers running back coach Ryan Held, went well. Moore, who measured in at 6 feet and 178 pounds, ran a 4.56-second 40-yard dash and did agility drills while also running some routes out of the backfield and from the slot.

“Coach Held was a pretty cool guy,” Moore said of the experience. “I also got to talk with coach (Scott) Frost a little bit during the workout.”
Moore burst on to the scene for Fremont as a sophomore in 2019, rushing for 799 yards and nine touchdowns while catching 12 passes for 134 yards. Last season as a junior, he rattled off 1,024 rushing yards and 12 scores with 12 catches for 184 yards and one touchdown.
“I feel like I’m pretty straight-line fast,” Moore said when asked to describe his game. “I’m pretty agile, but I’m not like super shifty. I’m more of a slasher I’d say.”
Moore said his goal is to play football at the next level. Putting himself out there in the camp scene this month is what needs to happen in order to achieve it.
“I’m willing to go to these types of things to get recognized,” Moore said. “You’ve got to be willing to put in the work to show the coaches what you’ve got.”
Nebraska’s director of player personnel, Sean Dillon, has talked to Moore the most out of everyone. Wyoming’s linebackers coach, Aaron Bohl, has also been in his ear.
“South Dakota State and North Dakota State have all talked to me a little bit, too,” Moore said. “Smaller schools like Wayne State College and Augustana talk to me quite a bit.”
Moore, who attended the Lindenwood mega camp in Missouri last week, is also planning on attending a camp at Iowa on Friday. A trip to Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, will come later in the month.
“My goal is to just get noticed or get an offer to get things going on the right track,” Moore said.
