Meet the Week 6 ASPIRE Athletes of the Week: Wes Brow and Emily Moore

Congratulations to Wes Brow, a senior football player at Erie High School, and Emily Moore, a senior softball player at Chaparral High School, for being named the ASPIRE Athletes of the Week for Week 6!

Brow plays running back and defensive line for the Tigers, and have been chalking up impressive performances all season. Against Northridge on Oct. 9, he helped his team overcome a 10-point halftime deficit with stellar play.

“Wes completely took over the second half during our comeback,” explained Chris Summers, Erie’s head coach. “Wes took it upon himself to take charge of the team and ran wild in our opening drive. He was a huge factor on the both sides of the ball, helping us score our go-ahead touchdown and keeping Northridge scoreless in the second half.”

Off the field, Brow is just as impressive.

“Wes is an excellent leader of his teammates,” stated Erie’s athletic director, Richie Wildenhaus. “He plays hard and expects others around him to do the same. He impresses opponents from the time he steps off the bus all the way through the game.”

Moore has a similar impact at Chaparral, where her contributions extend beyond the softball field, where she’s helped the Wolverines to a 18-3 record this season and the No. 1 seed at the state tournament. Moore has lettered in basketball and track at Chaparral, holds a 4.0 GPA, works on the school newspaper and is a member of National Honor Society.

“Athletically, Emily is one of the best our program has ever seen,” said Chaparral’s softball coach, Alan Digisio. “She is the epitome of a hardworking, team-oriented player who on most occasions is concerned about the well-being of others more than herself.”

This is on display away from the game, as well. Emily created the Diamond Project, which collects used softball gear from local teams and donates all the equipment to less fortunate girls in the Dominican Republic. This year, Emily and some of her teammates are personally taking the gear down to the Dominican Republic over Thanksgiving to equip and inspire more young girls to take up softball.

“Emily Moore has gone above and beyond what has been expected of her on the field, in the classroom and in the community,” stated Coach Digiosio. “She takes the initiative to do what needs to be done and leads her teammates and her peers in not only what she says but what she does.”

Wes and Emily’s interview will air on Mile High Sports Radio multiple times, but we’ve also got a sneak peek below.
