New York Giants defensive end Damontre Moore says that he is setting high goals for his first season in the NFL.

Damontre Moore has revealed that he will set himself "high goals" for his rookie season in the NFL.

The defensive end made his debut for the New York Giants in the team's pre-season win over the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday, making three tackles.

The 20-year-old told the team's website: "I like to set high goals and try to accomplish them, and if I do, I can say I accomplished something that was nearly impossible. If not, I'm going to be disappointed, but at the same time, if I come anywhere close to it, it's a good thing.

"I was excited. I just ran and did what coach told me to do. I got a little hitched up and I was there to make a play. It was all surprising to me.

"The Giants have a tremendous history producing top pass rushers and defensive linemen. To have all those guys and to have a great group of guys that are still here like Justin Tuck, [Mathias Kiwanuka] and [Jason Pierre-Paul], that's a lot of pressure, but at the same time it's a good thing, because I have a lot of older guys to look up to and learn from and get their experience and wisdom and maybe learn some techniques."

Moore was selected in the third round of this year's draft.
