During 14 seasons at Center Grove, Eric Moore has firmly established himself as one of the state’s top high school football coaches.
Seven sectional and regional titles, two semistate crowns and a state championship attest to that.
But on the track and field front, Moore — the Trojans boys coach — has carved a similar winning identity.
Nine sectional titles, a regional crown and one team state champion speak to that.
Clearly, the National Federation of State School Associations has listened.
Moore, the Trojans football and track coach since 1999, has been named the NFHS Coaches Association 2012 Coach of the Year for boys track and field in Indiana.
Moore, who guided the Trojans to the team state title in 2011, learned of the honor Tuesday morning — about two months after leading the football team to its fourth Class 5A semistate appearance in the past five years.
