With the way the Moore Schools District transfer policy is set up, if Moore doesn’t want to continue to loose kids to Westmoore and Southmoore, Mashburn knows they have to shows kids and parents that the Lions are serious about succeeding on all fronts.
“We want all our kids that are in our district to come to Moore High school,” Mashburn said. “That’s our ultimate goal. Whether they play sports or don’t play sports. Academics here are huge. We take pride in that, just like we do our athletic program. But we want to win. We want to be the best we possibly can be. And we want to give the kids the opportunity to do that. If we have to make changes a long the way, that’s part of the job. No different for me in my position. If I’m not doing what I’ve been asked to do in my job description, they are going to replace me. Are we going to make changes along the way? Sure we are. Can’t sit here and say we’re not. Am I out to get everybody? No I’m not. But it was just time to make a change.”
