LOGAN, Utah - Utah State wing Jalen Moore has been named as one of 30 finalists for the Senior CLASS Award, recognizing student-athletes that have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition. The list of 30 will be narrowed to 10 in February and placed on a ballot for a nationwide voting process involving the media, coaches and fans.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School ®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
Moore has been a leader for the Aggies on the court over the past two seasons, leading the team in scoring and rebounding during his sophomore and junior campaigns. Moore is also leading the Aggies in scoring this season, averaging 17.7 points per game and is currently tied for the team lead on the glass with 4.9 rebounds per game.
In addition to his performance on the court, Moore is also active in the community, helping with basketball camps, serving at local food pantries, reading to elementary school students and spending time doing crafts at a special-needs elementary school in the summer.
Moore is one of two student-athletes in the Mountain West on the list of 30, including Wyoming's Jason McManamen, and is the only student-athlete from the state of Utah.
