NSU Hall member dies

NSU Athletics Hall of Famer Charlie Moore has died at the age of 72 due to lingering illness.

Moore played football and basketball at Northeastern State and was an All-American during the 1958 NAIA football National Championship season. He went on to play for the Oakland Raiders.

Moore was inducted into NSU’s Athletics Hall of Fame in 1992. He was coached by legendary NSU football coach and fellow NSU Hall of Famer Harold “Tuffy” Stratton. Jack Dobbins served as his basketball coach.

“We were close friends ever since he graduated,” Dobbins said. “He was an outstanding person, and he had a great personality.”

At the time of his death, he was in charge of a insurance company in Nevada City, Calif.

There will be a memorial service in Moore’s honor inside the indoor practice facility, and the time is tentatively scheduled for 1 p.m. March 16.
