Moor attended the Episcopal School of Dallas, and played college soccer for Furman University in 2002, before transferring to Indiana University, where he played for two seasons. He started every game during his college career and helped the Hoosiers to back-to-back National Championships. His last collegiate game was in the penalty kick thriller against UC Santa Barbara in the 2004 NCAA Finals in which Moor's Indiana was triumphant. Moor was named All-Big Ten as a sophomore and a first team All-American as a junior before forgoing his final year of eligibility to declare himself eligible for the MLS Superdraft.

Professional[edit]

After spending the summer of 2004 playing for Chicago Fire Premier in the USL Premier Development League, he was drafted by FC Dallas with the sixth overall pick of the 2005 MLS SuperDraft. During his rookie season, Moor played in 20 games for FC Dallas, starting nine of them. 2006 was a breakout year for the second-year defender. He started in 21 consecutive games and set career highs in every statistical category. Moor scored his first career MLS goal on May 6, 2006 against the Houston Dynamo in a 4–3 loss. In 2007, Moor led the team with 28 starts and scored two goals including a game-winning header against the Colorado Rapids on August 4, 2007 in a 1–0 victory. Moor started in 27 games for FC Dallas during the 2008 season, seven of them as team captain. He led all FC Dallas defenders with two goals and was second in minutes played with 2,430 behind Kenny Cooper (2,622). Moor was traded to Colorado Rapids on August 31, 2009. On June 5, 2010, Moor scored his first goal in a Rapids jersey, which won the game in the 85th minute against the Columbus Crew. A hooked ball from Jamie Smith met Moor's head as he dove and scored the only goal of the match. On August 21, 2011, Moor finished his 68th consecutive complete MLS game, breaking the MLS record for field players held by Peter Vermes.
