Bill "Red" Moore

Football ∙ Rochester

 

 

 

 

When William (Red) Moore played guard for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1947 to 1949 seasons, professional football linemen didnít have to be muscle bound giants. But they did have to possess the guts and stamina to play both offense and defense sometimes for 60 minutes, which is why the rugged Moore was able to compete in the pros at a mere 220 pounds. The former Rochester High School star and Penn State captain earned All Pro honors with the Steelers in 1947 but decided to move on to safe and more lucrative fields after the 1949 season. At Penn State he was roommate with former high school rival Leo Nobile. He spent five years as a sales representative for Alcoa before trying his hand at college football coaching. He was head coach at Allegheny College (Meadville) from 1954 to 1957 and defensive line coach at Cornell University from 1958 to 1963. Billís collegiate football career was interrupted by two years of service aboard a Navy destroyer in World War II. After returning to Penn State, he earned All American honorable mention in 1946. After that Bill was a district sales manager for a recreational equipment firm.
