Terence Moore, Linebacker

Returning to the Albany for his second season, Terence Moore is coming off a career year with the Empire in the team’s inaugural season.  “T-Mo” found himself towards the top of the League in many defensive statistical categories a season ago.  Moore led the League with six interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown, and tied for second with 68.5 total tackles.  The linebacker also finished third in the League with two forced fumbles and second with two fumble recoveries.   Moore’s dominance on the field earned him Defensive Player of the Year and First Team All-Arena honors.  Moore enters his eighth year in the League after debuting in 2012 with the Spokane Shock.  The Troy University graduate set a career high with his six interceptions last year and looks to build on his success and help bring a championship back to the Capital Region.

Prince Shonola, wide receiver, has been placed on Recallable Reassignment.
