ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Former Monroe star Derrick Moore back in his hometown.

Moore was the guest speaker for the annual YMCA dinner.

The theme "Celebrate the Best"

Derrick Moore has certainly become one of the best motivational speakers in the nation after his football career that included stops in Atlanta, Detroit and Carolina.

Derrick is also the team chaplain at Georgia Tech and says the mission of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is the same as that of the YMCA.

Derrick Moore said. "The Y has been doing that for years and years. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the opportunity provided us at Georgia Tech gives us a chance to be a support system for young people and even older ones in a day and age certainly do need it."

Derrick Moore's latest book is entitled "It's Possible".
