Is this too high for a holder?
Not if it’s the Mortell Holder of the Year Award winner.

On a serious note, Moores did a good job as the holder last year, and he even scored a 2-point conversion on a fake extra point against Rutgers. (Who didn’t score in that game? Oh, yeah. Rutgers.)
Moores was a solid high school quarterback and is decently athletic. It wouldn’t be surprising at all to see Michigan cook something up for him again this year. Hopefully he can repeat.
