Kealakehe freshman goalie Moore nets rare honor


Tribune-Herald

Kealakehe freshman Greyson Moore was named to the All-Big Island Interscholastic Federation first team at goal keeper, an honor that is quite a rarity.

He was incorrectly listed as a senior.

He helped the Waveriders to a 14-0-1 league record, and the BIIF Division I championship. Moore recorded eight shutouts during the BIIF season, and had 24 saves in a 1-0 first-round win over Kapolei at the Hawaii High School Athletic Association state tournament.

Moore has been the goalie for the Olympic Development Program team, for players born in 1998, the last two years. Last summer, he participated in an ODP camp in Oregon and a tourney in Phoenix. He has played for the Honolulu Bulls and is currently playing for the Kona Crush.

There has never been a four-time All-BIIF first team pick at goalie. It is also a rarity to land on the first team at goalie as a freshman, because unlike the other 10 or more field players there is only one choice for the position.

(There are 11 positions for soccer, but for All-BIIF teams there are 12 selections, including only one goalie.)

Marissa Minor, as a Konawaena junior, was the last goalie to earn the BIIF’s Player of the Year award in 1996.
