Moose Weekes is living a dream as a Harlem Globetrotter. “I can’t think of another job where you can have such a great time doing what you love to do, while putting smiles on people’s faces every day,” says Moose.
His dream started when his mom, a single parent from Trinidad who played basketball herself, instilled a love for the game in her son. Moose still fondly remembers an AAU game as a teenager when he preserved a championship victory by running down an opponent from behind and swatting away a shot in the waning seconds of the game.
Moose became one of the top high school players in the country and went on to play at Middle Tennessee State, where he led the Blue Raiders in blocks as a freshman and broke the school record for most blocked shots in a game, with eight. He studied wellness and exercise science in college and would enjoy training other athletes following his playing days.
Among his pregame rituals are listening to some country rap tunes while stretching, drinking some coconut water and eating bee pollen ... you know, typical stuff. He will eat anything on a pizza - except onions.
