Moe Masden, a rising junior, is on the watch-list for several schools. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete is one who can play multiple roles, but his strengths lie on the offensive side of the ball.
"My strengths would be catching the ball and breaking down my defender," Masden said. "Blocking, opening up lanes for my teammates and my football I.Q. are strengths too," he said.
Masden's physical skills aren't his only asset for Ballard.
"I'd describe myself as not a vocal leader, but a lead by example type of guy. I think my effort is contagious on the field to my teammates," he continued.
Unfortunately for Masden, he missed time as a sophomore due to an injury, but when the opportunity presented itself, he gave his best effort.
"Last year I dealt with an injury – a broken hand. That set me back and humbled me a lot. When I was able to play, I played my role in spot minutes," he said.
Masden also got a chance to show what he could do this summer on the camp circuit where he felt like he made a good impression.
I went to the Illinois and Indiana State camps. I attended the 7-on-7 tournament at Kentucky. I did fairly good. Things went best at both camps. Coach Bellamy from Illinois was impressed after my showing. (Ballard Head Coach) Mike Jackson thinks D-1 schools will start showing interest," said Masden.
Illinois, Southern Illinois, Indiana State and Eastern Kentucky are currently showing him the most interest. Masden hasn't scheduled any visits yet, but he hopes to make some plans soon.
