Herbert Moore

Class of 1959

Herbert was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003. His citation is below:

During his days at Towson High School, Herb Moore wanted to attend Washington College and had visited campus to meet with Coach Charley Clark. But when University of Maryland offered him a lacrosse scholarship, he accepted. Herb soon learned to follow his instincts: he decided to transfer from Maryland during his freshman year. This proved to be Washington College’s good fortune since Herb became one of the outstanding goalies that this College has developed.

During his tenure, 1956 through 1959, the team experienced four winning seasons, competing against some of the strongest lacrosse schools in the nation plus several outstanding club organizations. It should be understood that in this era of lacrosse competition, there was only one classification of collegiate lacrosse. The All-American Selection Committee considered all colleges and universities on the same level. Herb Moore earned Honorable Mention status during his junior year and in his senior year was a third team All-American. The Naval Academy singled him out for the Stephen Seth Award, given to the most outstanding player to have opposed the Naval Academy. The Baltimore Sun in 1959 named him to the All-State Team. In both 1958 and 1959 he led the nation in saves, and was selected to participate in the annual all-star North-South game, again when there was only one game played.

After college, Herb played club lacrosse for the Mt. Washington Club, and coached at Park School in Baltimore, and at Towson High School—with his team winning the county championship on several occasions. He later coached at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.

Washington College considers it an honor and privilege to induct Herbert Moore into the Washington College Athletic Hall of Fame on this fourth day of October, 2003.
