Moses eyes career year in 2012

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- Saturday's UVA spring practice at Sports Backers Stadium marked a homecoming for several Cavalier players, and that included former Meadowbrook star Morgan Moses.  The offensive tackle has progressed very well for Mike London and has grown into one of the best lineman in the ACC.

Moses is a rising junior for the Cavaliers.  He collected freshman All-American honors following his first year in 2010 and last year was one of only 13 players on the Wahoo roster to start all 13 games.  He collected a Phil Steele preseason and postseason All-ACC honor and is one of the best at protecting the quarterback.

Mike London is quick to point out that Moses is a terrific representative of UVA, both on and off the field.  London says that Moses is excelling in the classroom as well as the football field and is proving a lot of doubters wrong that he can succeed in Charlottesville.  He signed his National Letter of Intent in 2009 and played a year of prep football at Fork Union Military Academy.  After Al Groh was fired, Moses stuck with his commitment to the Wahoos and is making it pay off.

Moses and the Wahoos are coming off an 8-5 season which saw them gain some valuable experience from the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, and the extra practices that came along with it.  The Cavaliers hold their spring game on April 14 at 2:00pm.
