Nat Moore


During his 13 years as standout member of the Miami Dolphins, Nat Moore broke almost every career receiving record for the team and remained the all-time leading Dolphins receiver until the 1991 season. After playing college ball for University of Florida, he was a third round draft pick for the Dolphins in 1974. Nat played in Super Bowls XVII and XIX, started the 1977 Pro Bowl, and still stands second on the Dolphins all-time career receiving touchdowns list with 74.

He carried his success in football over into his personal life by giving unselfishly of his time to many charitable causes in South Florida, where he grew up and went to Miami Edison High School. Establishing a reputation on and off the field led Nat to be named the 1984 NFL “Man of the Year,” an honor bestowed on the player who gives outstanding service to his community, and earned him the 1986 Byron White Humanitarian Award for his service to his team, community and country.

Since retiring from professional football in 1987, Nat has dedicated himself to giving back to the community where he grew up and found tremendous support throughout his career. In 1998, he founded The Nat Moore Foundation as a means to support children-oriented groups that didn’t have the necessary platforms to raise adequate funding for their missions. Since its inception, the Nat Moore Foundation has dispersed nearly $2 million to various youth and social service organizations in South Florida, primarily through revenues from the Cannon Florida Classic. This celebrity golf tournament partners area residents with sports and entertainment greats for a day on the golf course, as well as a weekend of memorable events including a party and auction.

Retirement has not taken Nat away from football. He continues his work with the Miami Dolphins as the Senior Vice-President of Alumni Relations & Special Projects, Sr Advisor to Ceo. Nat is a broadcast analyst during Miami Dolphin pre-season games on WFOR, Miami’s local CBS affiliate. Nat also is a color analyst on Sun Sports Breakfast with the Gators Re-Broadcast during University of Florida football season. He also serves as the Executive Director of the Pro Bowl Youth Football Clinics; he brings NFL stars and children together for fun, football, and education.

Nat also serves on a number of boards across South Florida, including SunTrust Bank NA, Orange Bowl Committee, FCAA, SMF Energy Corp. and the South Florida Golf Foundation. In spite of his busy schedule, Nat still finds time to enjoy a good golf game and spend time with his wife, Pat, and his five children.
