Olive, Mississippi, the second of three sons of Aretta and Elmer Moore. He grew up in Berkeley, Fresno and Washington, DC. He graduated from Calvin Coolidge High School in Washington, D.C. in 1965 where he enjoyed playing football and baseball.

His freshman year he finished second in the JC State rankings in total yards rushing and receiving. He was all-conference in both football and baseball.
