Moseley Named Mr. Football

Leroy's Clint Moseley won the biggest honor for an Alabama high school player on Thursday.

Leroy, Ala.--Add another honor for record-setting quarterback Clint Moseley as on Thursday he was honored as Mr. Football in Alabama for his performance as a senior in leading the Bears to a perfect 15-0 season and the Class 2A state title.

Dominant from start to finish in 2008, the 6-5, 200 Moseley threw for 3,695 yards and 39 touchdowns with just four interceptions for the season. He also added nearly 700 yards on the ground and 15 touchdowns. He capped off his season in style as he threw for a Super Six record 272 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-8 win over Sulligent in the final game.

Moseley has offers from Marshall, South Alabama and UAB and visited the Thundering Herd last weekend on an official visit. He's also receiving strong interest from Auburn with a contingent offer on the table. New Tiger head man Gene Chizik could decide to honor an offer by the Tigers provided he likes what he sees from the big righty. Schools such as South Carolina and Boise State are also giving him more than a second look.

One of the top athletes in Alabama, Moseley won three consecutive state titles in football and will be going for three-straight in baseball this spring. He was named the MVP of the Super Six earlier this month and is the reigning MVP of the baseball finals as well.

Moseley won Mr. Football over runner-up Tim Simon from Cordova. Gadsden City's Dre Kirkpatrick finished third with Randon Carnathan from Leeds rounding out the top four.
