Moses Alipate Named to Under Armour AA Game

Bloomington Jefferson junior quarterback Moses Alipate, who committed to Minnesota in February, has been named to the Under Armour All-America Game, which will be televised Janaury 4th on ESPN. Alipate is the second of three Minnesota natives to commit to the Gophers. Alipate is a standout two-sport athlete, but he will not play AAU hoops, due to a hectic summer football schedule.

Moses Alipate led Bloomnigton Jefferson to a 2-7 record this past year. He completed 67 of 146 passes for 907 yards with seven touchdowns and 12 interceptions. His two best games were in wins over Apple Valley and Eagan.

Alipate completed seven of 13 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns in their 25-20 win over Apple Valley. He completed 13 of 25 passes for 269 yards and four scores in a 36-29 win over Eagan.

He completed 79 of 187 passes for 892 yards with 13 interceptions and three touchdowns for the Jaguars as a sophomore, when they finished 0-9.

Alipate was the Jaguars' second-leading scorer on the hardwood as Jefferson finished 14-11 this season with three consecutive wins. He averaged 14.5 points per game and scored in double figures in all but four games this season, including a season-high 32 points against Chaska.

Alipate helped lead Jefferson to a 23-6 record as a sophomore as they advanced to the Minnesota Class AAAA State tournament. He averaged 8.9 points per game this season and scored in double figures in 10 of 29 games, including three of their four playoff contests. Alipate scored 16 points in the section finals against Minnetonka and had 14 in their state tournament loss to Apple Valley.

Alipate shined at the recent junior combine at the U.S. Army Game in San Antonio.
