CHS alumnus Moore returns ‘home’ to lead Falcon baseball program

New Channelview High School Head Baseball Coach John Moore

New Channelview High School Head Baseball Coach John Moore has found his way back home.

The 1998 alumnus and standout athlete for the Falcon football and baseball team served as a varsity assistant at CHS from 2004-2009 before becoming the first head coach at Bastrop ISD’s Cedar Creek High School in 2010. Moore established himself as a winning coach, guiding his teams to the playoffs the past three years, which included a state-ranked squad last year.

Moore was happy as coach of Cedar Creek and had thoughts of a long-term career in Central Texas. However, the opportunity he had dreamed about presented itself – a chance to lead the Channelview Falcons baseball team.

“We built a great program from the ground up at Cedar Creek and we were really hitting our stride,” Moore said. I could have stayed there for a long time, but then I heard about the opening here in Channelview. It was the only job that could make me turn my head. After giving it a lot of thought, I knew my heart was leading me back home.”

With his family still living in the Channelview area, Moore has remained connected with the community and his alma mater.

20-17 : North Shore wins in goal line stand

The Mustang defense was the key to victory in the game against Katy. The goal line stand stopped them on the 1 yard line.

HOUSTON – In a battle between two Championship teams, the North Shore Mustangs came out on top, and will advance to the semi-final regional play-offs this Friday in the NRG Stadium.

The final five minutes of the game were exciting, and determined the win.

North Shore’s Kerrion Hadnot ran 48 yards for a touchdown, thwarting Katy’s defenders. With five minutes left, the score was then 20-17, but Katy wasn’t through trying.

On the next round, Katy QB Rocky Emery hit JC Angulo with a 43 yard pass, bring them to the Mustang 2 yard line, and what looked like a game winning TD.

But four plays later, on a 4th and goal on the 1 yard line, Katy coach Gary Joseph decided to try for a winning TD instead of a tie with a field goal. The Mustang defense was up to the challenge. Jacoby Allen stopped Katy’s Josh Oglesby with a 1 yard loss, and a turnover.

The North Shore Mustangs have defeated Dickinson 17-7 and Katy 20-17 in the regional play-offs.

Katy’s five year championship run ended with a 10-3 record, while the North Shore Mustangs, now 12-1, go on to the regional semi-finals Friday against Atascocita (11-1).

A large contingent of fans is expected at the NRG stadium to cheer the Mustangs on toward the state playoffs.
