Mooring Named Athlete of the Week
May 28, 2014By Donald Clark of Greene Central High School
Junior Austin Mooring has been chosen as Greene Central’s Athlete of the Week for the first week in April.
He was chosen by the varsity baseball coach Scott Jones for his recent outstanding pitching performances.
Mooring is currently enrolled in Honors Algebra II, Personal Finance, Honors Chemistry, and Advanced Physical Education as his second semester classes. He is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Club.
Mooring has played baseball for ten years. He has been on the varsity baseball team for two years and is a pitcher.
“Austin had a great game against Ayden-Grifton. He pitched six perfect innings,” said Jones.
“Austin is very relaxed, he doesn’t let things get to him on the field. He goes out there and gives his all, no matter what,” said senior Austin Batchelor.
“I don’t get down when I’m doing bad and that can result in something good, such as a good pitching performance,” said Mooring.
“Austin just has raw talent about him that he has had since he was a kid. Baseball just comes naturally to him; you can tell he loves the game,” said senior James Head.
In his free time, Mooring likes to play baseball, go hunting, or go fishing.
After graduation, Mooring plans to attend college and hopefully play baseball
He is the son of Michelle and Jim Mooring of Snow Hill.
