Living on the edge... the greatest halfback ever?

The crazy part is that Moreno's greatest asset isn't his athletic skill or his physical strength - although I would recommend checking out the highlight of Moreno jumping over a hapless Central Michigan defender (go to YouTube and search "Moreno jumps over defense").

The best part of Moreno's game is his unmatched energy. When a ravenous linebacker crushes him with a powerful tackle, Moreno is the first man to get up. He's been known to actually congratulate defenders for a vicious hit.

He's a player that any athlete should study and admire. When he goes down as one of the greats - which I'm sure will happen barring any major injuries - he will be remembered more for his passion than anything else. And passion is a trait that most of the greats have in common.
