CIRCLEVILLE, OH - As the winter began for the Trailblazer Men's Golf Program, the recruiting segment of the year began as Head Coach Matt Decker increased his pursuit for athletes that will continue to grow the program. Last week, two of his recruits officially signed to become members of the team, as both DJ Graham, son of Pat and Andrea Graham, and Casey Moore, son of Kevin and Kim Moore, committed to become Trailblazers next Fall. Graham and Moore both attend Piketon High School in Ohio and have been members of the golf team all four years. "From day one of their freshmen year, Casey and DJ were expected to lead the Piketon High School Golf Team and they did just that," said Piketon Golf Coach Kevin Moore. "Not only were they very good golfers, they were great students, leaders, teammates and a pleasure to coach."
Both athletes will be leaving a mark at Piketon, as both have received multiple honors in their time there. DJ Graham's resume includes multiple all-conference and all-state honors, while also winning District Player of the Year and Second Team All-Ohio 2016. DJ plans on studying accounting and finance while at OCU. Casey Moore has also received multiple all-conference and all-district honors, while also qualifying for the state tournament. Casey plans on studying accounting as well while attending OCU.
"I am very pleased to add two quality young men like DJ and Casey to our program," said Coach Decker. "They are great players, and also great young men. They are part of a bright future for the OCU men's golf team."
