BiographyStephen Moore was born in Jacksonville, Florida and it was apparent early on that he was not a typical child. He was standing at 3 months, climbing out of his crib at 6 months and walking at 9 months old.
At age 5, Stephen began skateboarding, mastering the most difficult tricks. At age 8, he began competing in pro-am tournaments against kids 13 years and older, placing in the top three in multiple competitions.
At age 10, Stephen started playing basketball when his dad volunteered to coach a youth basketball team at the Y. Stephen quickly learned the game, displaying the natural instincts of a point guard.
Stephen has developed into a lighting quick scoring threat with exceptional ball-handling and incredible court vision. He is an elite playmaker that excels at orchestrating the offense, setting up his teammates for shots that suit their skills. Stephen is also a great defender that can lock down any opponent.
In 2019, as a freshman playing 10th grade AAU, Stephen had his career best 7 three pointers against Gainesville High School. Stephen is a young high school junior, just turning 16 years old in August 2020, so Prep School is an option.
