Before they were Patriots
Sterling MooreSchool: Deer Valley High School, Antioch, Calif.
If Moore caught you by surprise this year, don't feel alone. He caught his high school coaches by surprise, too. "We were just looking at his stats," said Rich Woods, Moore's high school coach. "You know how many interceptions he had? Zero. He had 22 tackles and 10 assists. He wasn't all league." Woods, and Deer Valley athletic director Tim Rhyan, said Moore wasn't the best athlete, but he was one of the smartest. They figure that's why he fits in so well with Bill Belichick's team.
