Brad Moore named ODAC SID of the Year
Salem, Va. -- Brad Moore of Roanoke College has been named the 2008-09 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Sports Information Director of the Year, as voted on by the league's sports information professionals.
"I am very appreciative to receive this award from my peers," said Moore. "In what could be at times a tough position with the crazy hours, it is very rewarding to have recognition for what you do. I am glad to work alongside with what I believe some of the most respected SID's in Division III and it has been fun to work with the coaches and student-athletes at Roanoke."
Moore recently completed his second year as the director of athletic communications and event coordinator at Roanoke, where he is responsible for the promotion of the Maroons' 19-sport athletic program. In this role, he is responsible for production of media guides and other promotional publications for Maroons Athletics, along with bringing new waves of technology to the campus.
Moore introduced live stats, audio and video streaming and e-scores, helping to generate greater coverage of Roanoke College athletic events. He has also been heavily involved in numerous historical research projects, which have led to the expansion and enhancement of the record books for 10 RC sports teams.
Moore came to Roanoke in 2007 after serving as the assistant sports information director at LaGrange College (Ga.). While there, he was responsible for the development/maintenance of the school's athletic Web site, as well as comprehensive game-day management duties and publicity for all 15 Panther athletic programs.
An Owensboro, Ky. native, Moore also spent time as the assistant sports information director at Western Connecticut State University in 2005, and he has written for both the Danbury News-Times (Conn.), LaGrange Daily News (Ga.) and the Cincinnati Bearcat Digest at the University of Cincinnati. Additionally, he was the founder and editor of Scoreboard of Northern Kentucky Magazine, which gained regional attention.
A 2004 graduate of Thomas More College, Moore earned a Master's in Education concentrating on sports administration from Xavier University in 2006. He volunteered in the Xavier University Sports Information office and freelanced with the University of Cincinnati during home events for three years.
Moore is the conference's fifth recipient of the SID of the Year Award, joining Guilford's Dave Walters (2004-05), Washington and Lee's Brian Laubscher (2005-06), Mike Carpenter of Lynchburg (2006-07) and Mike Zucconi of Eastern Mennonite (2007-08).
