Moses makes varsity debut

Freshman Dylan Moses made his varsity debut against St. Charles Catholic this week and while it was only a preseason scrimmage, there was tremendous interest in how the 2017 RB/LB with real grown-man size (6-2, 220) would fare against a solid program such as St. Charles. How did Moses do? Find out inside...

Dylan Moses, the ninth-grade sensation with offers from many of the nation's best BCS schools, had a few butterflies before this week's scrimmage against St. Charles Catholic, a formidable opponent that went 15-0 en route to the 3A state title two years ago.

"It was a different atmosphere than I've been used to," Moses said. "I was timid at first but got into it quickly. I ran for 96 yards on seven carries with a touchdown. On defense, I had seven tackles with a fumble recovery that happened when the quarterback lost the ball."

Moses' head coach at U-High, Chad Mahaffey, was quite pleased with the performance.

"Coach was happy and said I did a good job," Moses said. "He said we handled our business."

U-High lost in the 2A semis last year to Evangel Christian but should be better this year with many returning studs, including the state's top 2015 player, RB Nicholas Brossette.

"Well, (Brossette) and me are really good friends," Moses said. "He's a cool guy, a good guy on and off the field. We hang out a lot.

"We have to work as a unit and keep our eyes on the prize to win the state championship. Everybody has it on their minds."

Moses camped with Georgia and earned an offer from the Bulldogs, and he's looking forward to watching LSU vs. Georgia.

"I really can't wait," he said. "I'm not sure if I'll have tickets for LSU and TCU next week, but the game I really want to see is LSU versus Georgia. I've been excited to see that game since I left Georgia's camp, when Coach (Mark) Richt said his team is looking good and should have a great season. I'm also eager to see LSU/Bama.
