Early years[edit]

His early education was secured in the public schools of Dallas,[1] following which he attended St. Matthew's Academy, an Episcopal preparatory school. He later supplemented this training by attending Baylor University School in Chattanooga, from which he received a scholarship to the Sewanee:The University of the South.


Moise was a prominent tackle for the Sewanee Tigers football team; "one of the great names of Sewanee football history."[2] At Sewanee he was a member of the Kappa Alpha fraternity.[3]


In 1909 the team won a conference championship. Moise was also the kicker on the squad.[3] He was selected All-Southern.[4]
