Moreno leads Jersey over New York

University of Georgia signee Knowshon Moreno rushed for 151 and scored three touchdowns to lead the New Jersey All-Stars to a 30-6 win over New York All-Stars in the two states' annual Governors Bowl.

Moreno also caught two passes for 21 yards. His touchdown runs came from 2, 3, and 12 yards out, and he rushed for a two-point conversion.

"So it was Moreno time once again," writes Phil Dusenbury who covered the game on Moreno's final score. "On first down the Bulldog caught an eight-yard pass. He then ran for 11 yards before busting off a 43-yard jaunt to the NY six. Three plays later he finished off the six-play, 68-yard drive with his third TD, a three-yard run."

Moreno's longest run of the day was 30 yards.

Middletown South's last day of school is today. Moreno is expected to move to Athens soon and get in the mix at tailback with the Bulldogs.

"How powerful will he be when he goes up against the types of linebackers and safeties we run into?," Georgia head coach Mark Richt wondered aloud recently. "That remains to be seen. He is going to come in here with a lot of energy, and if he plays better than some of the other guys, then we will throw him in there."

Moreno set the New Jersey high school scoring record with 782 points. In all, he scored 128 touchdowns. As a senior he rushed for 1,808 yards and 43 touchdowns.
