Former Parkview star Moore hired as NPSL head coach

Parkview grad Jason Moore has been named the head coach of the Greater Lowell (Mass.) United Football Club’s fledgling National Premier Soccer League team.

Moore was the No. 1 selection in 1999 Major League Soccer Draft and played five MLS seasons for four different teams — D.C. United, Colorado Rapids, Chicago Fire and New England Revolution. The midfielder, also a standout player in two seasons at Virginia, played his last MLS season with New England in 2003.

He stayed involved with soccer after retiring from MLS, most recently starting his own Moore Soccer Academy for team and player development.
