Cowboys look to Moore for leadership, production

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Tracy Moore wants to be the next great Oklahoma State receiver, following the likes of first-round NFL draft picks Justin Blackmon and Dez Bryant.

His coaches want him to understand that there's more to the job than just catching passes and scoring touchdowns.

Coach Mike Gundy and offensive coordinator Todd Monken both met with Moore after he caught four touchdown passes in Oklahoma State's 59-38 loss at Arizona last week, discussing what he can do beyond producing on the field.

Moore had three run-ins with police this offseason, resulting in his suspension for the season opener against Savannah State. Once he was back, he put up big numbers in his season debut with eight catches for 106 yards.

His four-touchdown performance matched the best of Bryant's career, and he only did it once.
