Charlie Moore commands close-knit Mac Irvin Fire squad

By Alec Kinsky, D1 Circuit, 05/08/15, 10:30AM EDT


As the season wears on, one thing has made itself clear; Charlie Moore is a stud.

The Mac Irvin Fire point guard has flown generally under the radar thus far, but his numbers speak for themselves. The Fire went 3-1 in Lexington, due in large part to Moore’s production. In four games, the 6-foot Chicago-product averaged 16.5 points. 6.5 assists and 3.5 steals.

This is the first season in a while that Mac Irvin doesn’t have a top-30 player. Moore’s play, which undoubtedly makes every one of his teammates better, has made that an afterthought.

Alec Kinsky caught up with the Morgan Park star, asking him a variety of questions about the EYBL, his biggest influences and his goals for the rest of the EYBL circuit.

Alec Kinsky: How’s the EYBL been for you so far? You’ve been putting up some stellar numbers.

Charlie Moore: So far the EYBL has been going great for me. It’s bee a great experience for me already and it’s still early on. But I’ve just been trying to play my game and not rush anything. I have to take the opportunities that are given to me.

AK: If you had to pick, what’s the strongest aspect of your game right now?

CM: The strongest part of my game right now I would say is the way I control the team as the point guard.

AK: How fun is it playing with your Morgan Park teammates?

CM: It’s always fun playing with those guys. They have great personalities and we’re good friends on and off the court. We’ll go to war for each other.

AK: What’s been the best part of playing for the Mac Irvin Fire?

CM: The best part of playing with the Fire is just the high level we compete at. We’re like a big family, we do everything with each other and we all have each other’s back.

AK: Anything you’re working on in particular right now?

CM: Right now, I’m just working on improving my defense and getting stronger physically and mentally.

AK: Any big hobbies outside of basketball?

CM: Not really any big hobbies, but I’m pretty good in NBA 2K15.

AK: Who’s your go-to team?

CM: Oklahoma City for sure.

AK: Anything in particular you’re looking for in a college choice? Academics? Coaching staff? PT?

CM: Definitely coaching. Just having a great relationship with them, as well as my family.

AK: Who’s been your biggest influence growing up so far?

CM: My biggest influence growing up so far is my dad by far. He motivates me all the time and he’s always on me, whether I’m playing good or bad.
