Moses Earns Freshman All-American Honors
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia freshman offensive tackle Morgan Moses has been named a Freshman All-American fourth-team member by Phil Steele’s Postseason Publication and an Honorable Mention Freshman All-American by CollegeFootballNews.com.
Moses became the seventh true freshman nationally to start at an offensive tackle position in 2010 when he started at right tackle against North Carolina. The Richmond, Va., native appeared in 11 games and started seven of them, six at right tackle. Before Moses started his first contest UVa had surrendered 17 sacks in 22 quarters prior to Moses’ first start. After halftime of the first start Moses was part of an offensive line that surrendered only six sacks over the final 26 quarters of the season.
In just his third start Moses went toe-to-toe with Miami’s Allen Bailey, who entered the game No. 26 in the nation in sacks. Moses shut Bailey down during a period where UVa went 13-straight quarters without allowing a sack.
Moses helped block for the ACC’s No. 4 passing attack and an offense that featured two of the ACC’s top 13 running backs.
