Penn Football All-Access: Camp Profile ~ CB Jonathan Moore

Not only did Penn's defense deliver the Ivy League's best overall performance in 2008, the unit also topped the conference in pass defense, allowing just 159.1 aerial yards per game on average. The Quakers swiped 15 interceptions, one of which was snagged by current senior Jonathan Moore in the season-finale against Cornell.

That pick capped off a breakout campaign for the Missouri City, TX native, who tallied 30 T and knocked down three passes a year ago. His performance fulfilled the high expectations the Red and Blue coaching staff set for Moore this time a year ago, as he ultimately proved a reliable option in nickel defensive packages (featuring five DBs).

With the graduation of Tyson Maugle this past May, Moore's responsibilities appear to be rising to those of a full-time starter.
