Herman Moore (born October 20, 1969 in Danville, Virginia) is a former American NFL wide receiver. He played football in high school, mostly as a kicker, setting the school record with a 48-yard field goal, as well as playing at tight end. He went to the University of Virginia, where he was first used as a defensive back to little effect, and finally as a wide receiver. Moore ended up setting a NCAA record by catching touchdown passes in nine consecutive games as a junior.
Moore was drafted in the first round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions, where he enjoyed a great deal of success. One of the larger wide receivers in the league, he was often more athletic than the defensive players that would cover him. He was selected to four Pro Bowls, from 1994-1997. In 1995, he broke the NFL record for catches in a season with 123, with 1686 yards, the fourth-most in league history. He was the second player (after Jerry Rice) to have three 100-catch seasons.
Moore quickly became one of Detroit's most popular athletes, often making community appearances alongside his wife and two kids. During his years with the Lions, he founded his Herman's Catch 84 Foundation. He played with the Lions until the 2002 season, when he joined the New York Giants. He was only activated for one game, and retired during that season.
Moore finished his 12 NFL seasons with 670 receptions for 9,174 yards and 62 touchdowns.
