Moyd was a first team all-SAC honoree at linebacker in 2009. He was Newberry's second leading tackler with 51 tackles after moving to linebacker from cornerback this season. He ranked in the top 25 in the conference in stops and recovered three fumbles, which tied for second in the league. He also forced two fumbles this season.

At the 2009 East Coast Bowl in Petersburg, Va., Moyd recorded six total tackles for the South squad, including five solo stops. This will be Moyd's second all-star game for this season.

Moyd becomes the third Newberry College player to participate in the Cactus Bowl. Center Zack Farr represented the scarlet and gray in the 2006 game and cornerback Jonathan Lyles participated in the 2005 game, sealing a win for the East squad with an interception of Pittsburg State's Neal Philpot on the West's final drive.
