Dominique Moe Deseret News 4A MVP

Timpview (Provo, UT) Dominique Moe linebacker was named the 4A All State MVP.

He may or may not go on to play college football like some of his more high-profile teammates, but Moe was invaluable to Timpview's undefeated run to a 4A state title.

"His all-around feel is what separates him from the rest of the guys," Timpview coach Louis Wong said about his starting middle linebacker. "He was the mainstay of our defense."

Moe finished his senior season with 83 tackles and six sacks, despite being undersized in the eyes of college coaches.

Moe, who saw significant playing time as a sophomore and started as a junior, was the most experienced Timpview defender and the leader everyone looked up to.

"He knew what we wanted to do defensively on any given call, and he was our plugger in the middle," Wong said. "That's why teams didn't run on us in the middle."

Moe is a tremendous athlete, someone the coaching staff seriously considered at quarterback early in his junior season before deciding he was better suited at linebacker.
