The Granite City High School basketball team has a new combo, and it just so happens that they are father and son.

“I feel like it helps, we can talk more on and off the court and we can have even more chemistry,” said Zidane Moore about having his dad as his basketball coach. Zidane is a junior at GCHS and this is the first year his father has coached him here. Coach Moore has an older son, Zeke Moore, who is playing basketball for Tulsa next winter. He also has an older daughter, Addaya Moore, who now plays basketball for the University of Illinois.

“The experience with the coaching, they help me with upper level moves and how to handle certain situations,” Zidane says about having older siblings in higher level basketball. Zidane is extremely lucky and grateful to have all the help to make him the player he is today. Coach Moore explains, “Off the court I to try to be his dad. We have fun watching movies and watching basketball games together,” he said about his relationship with his son. He also added that being Zidane’s coach is another way to bond with him because they both get to spend time together doing what they love.

From the looks of it, they both are very happy having each other on the court just as well as off the court. There’s nothing better than a father and son bonding over something they love the most.
