Malachi Moore returned home to Trussville, Alabama to host a football camp for kids. After the successful completion of the first Malachi Moore Football camp, the Alabama Crimson Tide star took to X to express his gratitude. He thanked everyone who made the camp possible and said that he had a great time.

According to the Trussville City Schools on X, the camp was held at the Hewitt-Trussville Stadium in Moore’s hometown, the same place where he played high school football.

Kids from ages six to 14 attended the camp where they got guidance from several Alabama stars and top-level coaches. It was a free of cost arrangement designed to give back to the community that made the defensive back the player he is today.

“Thanks Malachi for helping our community,” a part of the X post read.

Moore responded to the post with his own gratitude for everyone who helped him organize the event. He wrote:

“Thank you to all that made it happen🙏🏽had a great time.”

Malachi Moore's gesture for an 11-year-old girl in hospice care

Early last month, Malachi Moore traveled from Tuscaloosa to his hometown Trussville, to meet an 11-year-old girl. Henrietta Murray was in hospice care on May 5 when Moore turned up with a bouquet of flowers for her. He had first come across the girl during a visit to his mother Penny’s kindergarten class at Paine Elementary School in Trussville.

Henrietta was diagnosed with Bilateral Optic Atrophy at age three and was legally blind. She could see only two feet through her peripheral vision and used Braille to read and write. Moore met Murray and gave her a tight hug.

While the girl passed away due to her illness on May 15 this year, the Alabama safety’s gesture would have given her a lot of happiness in her last days. She had also attended a Crimson Tide game with Moore back in 2018, so the bond went back to before he even played in Tuscaloosa.
