Manfred Moore (born 1950-12-22 in Martinez, California) is a former professional American football running back and, briefly, rugby league football player of the 1970s.


Early years

Moore graduated from San Fernando High School in San Fernando California. He played college football for the University of Southern California.

Professional career

Moore was a 9th round selection (216th overall) in the 1974 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers[1]. He would play for the 49ers (1974-1975), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1976), the Oakland Raiders (1976 when they won Super Bowl XI), the Minnesota Vikings (1977)[2]. Moore, selected by the Buccaneers in the 1976 NFL Expansion Draft, was lucky enough to be picked up by the Super Bowl XI-bound Raiders after being waived by the winless (0-13, at that point) Buccaneers. With Rick Jennings injured and the playoffs about to start, the Raiders needed an extra kick returner as insurance.[3]


Brief rugby league appearance

After winning Super Bowl XI with the Oakland Raiders[4] in the United States, he was recruited by Australian New South Wales Rugby Football League premiership team the Newtown Jets in 1977.

Moore had a sensational start at Newtown, scoring the club's first try of the 1977 season. [5] However he lasted only four games in the NSWRFL; receiving a head injury in a match against Penrith which prompted him to return to the National Football League prematurely. [5]
