Whitmer graduate Marquise Moore is expected to start the season opener at defensive tackle for the University of Toledo, Rockets coach Matt Campbell said today.

Moore, a 300-pound true freshman, secured the job with an impressive fall camp, Campbell said.

Moore had 11 sacks last year at Whitmer and finished fourth at the state wrestling tournament.
