One of the most decorated athletes in Pittsburg State University, Brian Moorman of Sedgwick went on to become one of the NFL's most recognizable special teams players.
After winning three state championships in track and being named an All-State football player at Sedgwick High School, Moorman went to Pittsburg State University where he continued to play both sports.
In track, Moorman won three NCAA Division II National Championships in the 400 meter hurdles while at Pitt State. He also finished in the top five in the nation in the 110 meter hurdles three times and the top five in the nation in the 55 meter hurdles twice. He also claimed eight conference titles in indoor and outdoor track. Moorman was a ten-time All-American for the Gorillas on the track.
On the football field, Moorman specialized in punting for the Gorillas, ranking the in the top four in the nation for punting average as both a freshman and sophomore before leading the nation in punting average as a junior at 46.0 yards per punt. Moorman was selected to the All-Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) team all four years and became the first Pitt State football player in the history of the storied program to earn All-America honors each of his four years on campus.
Following his senior year, Moorman signed as a free agent with the Seattle Seahawks, where he spent two seasons, before finding his home with the Buffalo Bills. For the next eleven seasons, Moorman was the person called on to help the Bills flip the field position with his leg, which he did in spectacular fashion. He ranked in the top five in punting yardage three times and the top five in punting average five times with the Bills. He was also named to the Pro Bowl team in both 2005 and 2006.
