    Once Moore picked up comic books from a leftover moving box of his uncle's, he never put them down.

    “As a kid, I would dress up as He-man and run around out here,” said Moore, pointing out the window of his Harrison County studio.

    On Monday night, Harrison County squandered a 10-point lead late in the third quarter, didn’t score their first points of the fourth quarter until 30 seconds were left in the game, and still held on for a hard-fought and well-earned, 34-30 victory over Pendleton County.
