After graduating from Cordova High School, Moregera signed to play college football at the NAIA level at Graceland University. Due to an ankle sprain, unfortunately, he was out for the season. Because of this and many other factors, Moregera decided that was best for him to get a fresh start in his journey and made his decision to transfer to Greenville this past spring semester and continue his career and studies in Criminal Justice. Moregera has made an early impact for the Panthers and has a very bright future ahead of him. When it’s all said and done, Moregera wants to be remembered not only as a football player but more. “I want to be remembered as a respectful and caring person who wants everyone to reach their full potential, no matter what their craft/profession is. Also, one who advocates for everyone’s rights,” Moregera declared confidently.
