Defining iron man at MHS



“I knew immediately something was wrong,” Webb said. “I looked over at the sideline and everything was blurry and I couldn’t see the signals.”

Webb said it was his third or fourth concussion he’s had in his life. But only the second in his high school career.

“It’s a tough thing to do,” Moore coach Todd Watters said. “He did it last week in the second half. He did for most of this game. But it came back and bit us in the rear end and caught up to us. Tough way he plays, but he plays it with a lot of courage. He’s done a great job for us.”

Because of his talent and massive injuries throughout the roster, Moore can’t afford to be without Webb on both sides of the ball. Offensively, he leads the team with 705 yards rushing, 487 yards passing and 10 touchdowns. On defense, he’s in the middle of the action on almost every play.

“Probably the most violent position in football is the Mike linebacker, which it should be, and he plays it that way,” Watters said. “And as an option quarterback, you are going to take hits. It’s not like you are just handing the ball off and throwing the ball. So he’s taking shots there. He’s playing probably the two most violent positions on the field.”

Webb said it’s tough for him to choose between which he likes best. But lucky or unlucky for him, he won’t have to make that choice. If he is cleared by the doctors, Webb said he will be back in the starting lineup this week when the Lions (2-6) travel to Norman to take on Norman North (7-1).

“I get hit pretty hard at both spots,” Webb said. “I just look at it as if my coach needs me to play both ways, I will play both ways.”
