A lot of attention is given to guys on this Jets offensive line. Nick Mangold gets a lot of attention for the right reasons, and Wayne Hunter gets attention for unfortunate reasons.

However, there is one guy who has been a staple of this offensive line even longer than Nick Mangold. He has been a starter for the Jets since the days of Herman Edwards, and he is the focus of this week’s Sunday Morning Spotlight. Spotlight on offensive guard, Brandon Moore.

Brandon Moore was born June 30, 1980, in Gary, Indiana.

You may or may not know, interestingly enough in his journey to the Jets, he actually played a great deal of defensive end in high school and college. At West Side High School, he led the Northwest Conference with 15 sacks and 91 tackles, as well as leading his school to the Northwest Conference title in 1996. Brandon was an All-Conference selection on both offense and defense.

Turn the page and we will talk about his time at the University of Illinois.
