Colts DB Kenny Moore’s mom was breakout Hard Knocks star
By Mike Luciano
The Indianapolis Colts became the first team to ever be featured on “Hard Knocks” during the middle of the season, pulling back the curtain and giving fans an in-depth look at some of the players that have helped Indy’s playoff push. A family member of cornerback Kenny Moore may end up being the show’s next breakout star.
Moore has been his normal mild-mannered self on the show. After a sluggish start, the Valdosta State alum is starting to get back to the guy we saw over the last few years. As for Moore’s mom, Angela Carter, she may end up being one of the show’s must-see attractions due to his support of her son.
While Moore might not be the most cantankerous or boisterous player in the league, his mom was going all-out in support of her son in the stands. Carter, like most parents with a son in the NFL, rode a roller coaster of emotions while watching her son play. The anxiety was so palpable that Carter had to look into her hands while the game was going on.
We’ve seen parents go all-out in support of their kids on the field, but Carter might be one of the most animated we’ve seen. Between asking for a Tylenol and a tall glass of wine after the game, she’s got the formula for instant Hard Knocks stardom down.
Indianapolis Colts CB Kenny Moore’s mom was a star on Hard Knocks.
Before the game, Moore’s mom didn’t seem too interested in a pre-game proposal. She was locked in and ready to cheer on her son.
We feel the same way!
Moore and his family got plenty of screen time in this episode, as his relationship with Mason Garvey was documented. Garvey passed away after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, but Moore became very close with the entire family. Get some tissues on hand for this episode.
Moore has mentioned how influential his mom has been in his life. When his father left, Carter moved Moore and his six sisters down to her parents’ two-bedroom house in Miami. Carter helped Moore on his way to becoming one of the finest slot cornerbacks in the entire league.
Very rarely does a player go from tiny little Valdosta State to the bright lights of Indianapolis without a solid support structure behind him. Hopefully, we see more of Carter and the Moore family before the series ends.
