Moon, despite only playing football just his senior year after his high school coach happened to cross paths with him in the hallways between class, has become the most shutdown defensive back the state of Utah has ever seen. The Beehive state might never see another player of his athletic caliber come through again in our lifetimes. Playing only hockey and lacrosse growing up Moon was thought to be a lock to play one of those in college after receiving all state honors his first 3 years of high school in both sports. Forrest’s name in the lacrosse world is akin to the likes of Mario Lemieux or Sidney Crosby as who would’ve been the next face of the sport for years to come. Moon broke every record conceivable for an attackmen and then decided to switch to goalie where he allowed only 7 goals all year his senior year on an inconceivable 99.76% save percentage. He led Davis High School to 4 consecutive state titles leading them in points his first 3 years earning all state every year and all american status his final 3 years. The 6’1 195 uber athlete was at home the moment the stick touched his hands, which led him to the ice on the lakes just north of Ogden, Utah. He took off running, or skating to be exact, as if he came out of the womb with blades on his feet. He ended up captaining the US Developmental team at the World Juniors where they placed second. Moon leading them in points with a record breaking 34 assists and a nothing to scoff at 12 goals throughout the international tournament. Once he decided to strap on the pads and buckle in that chin strap though, it was as if he’s done it all his life. Leading Davis to a state championship with a state leading 18 interceptions and 34 pass breakups. He used his agility from lacrosse to be able to quickly change direction in his backpedal in order to chase down angles as if he was a protractor. His hockey background came in to play as well when forcing his 6 fumbles and 9.5 TFL, laying wood all over the field. Moon turned down offers from every top lacrosse school in the nation as well as turning down declaring for the VHL draft straight out of high school opting to go the route of the sport that has barely been part of his life journey so far, he reached new highs quickly and is looking to reach one’s exponentially higher very soon.
