Matt Moore receives his honor at Hart High School.

Matt Moore's football uniform number 17 was retired Friday night before host Hart (Newhall, Calif.) shut out Saugus (Calif.) 35-0.

Currently a quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, Moore had a magical senior year. He completed 66 percent of his passes (234-353) for 3,334 yards and 33 touchdowns while leading Hart to a 13-0 record and the Southern Section Division III championship in 2001. He also ran for 415 yards and seven touchdowns. He later was named CIF-Southern Section Division III Offensive Player of the Year.

As a junior, he starred at safety, making 80 tackles and 10 interceptions.

He attended UCLA and Oregon State and played for the Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers before joining the Dolphins.
