Northeastern High School head football coach Antonio Moore will serve as a coach in the Carolina Bowl football showcase game.

Moore acknowledged to The Daily Advance in a June 14 interview it is always an honor to be selected to be part of a bowl game.

“You coach all these years to get an opportunity to do stuff like that,” He said. Moore noted as a coach, being part of a bowl game is an achievement.

The Carolina Bowl game features youth athletes from North Carolina against athletes from South Carolina.

For Moore, giving his time to upcoming athletes is fun.

“I always thought about me as a child growing up, we didn’t have the opportunity that kids have now,” Moore said.

Moore has previously coached in the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas High School Senior All-Star football game and the Youth Shrine Bowl football game.

According to the Carolina Bowl Facebook page, the game featuring 5th-8th grade students is scheduled to be played January 1, 2022.
