The EDGY take on Moe Dampeer? "Watching Moe Dampeer on the football field and talking to Moe off the field is literally like dealing with Dr. Jekell and Mr. Hyde. Off the field Moe is as genuine and as outgoing and friendly a kid than you'll find anywhere. On the field? Dampeer's highlight tape is a thing to behold. First off Dampeer plays Hoops for the Generals, and seeing this BIG kid throw down a running one handed Tomahawk from about two steps from the free throw line tells you all you need to know about his athletic ability. Freaky! On the field? Dampeer is just blessed with size and strength beyond compare, from is ability to shake off double and triple teams to his ability to outrun most running backs....again the skills are freaky. Dampeer has great agility and also possesses exceptional upper body strength, he can and will just blow things up inside and can also chase things down outside. Dampeer can also kickoff consistently into the end zone! Dampeer has a motor that never stops! Moe Dampeer is a good reason why kids decide to play Soccer instead of Football in High School. His potential is incredible."
