Mozes on Playboy Team

West Virginia University center Dan Mozes has been named to the 2006 Playboy All-America team.

A four-year offensive line starter from Washington, Pa., Mozes was a second team Associated Press All-American and a Rimington Trophy finalist last season, his first at the center position. He earned first team all-Big East honors as a sophomore and junior.

Previous Mountaineers on the Playboy team: Carl Crennel (1969), Paul Woodside (1983), Brian Jozwiak (1985), Major Harris (1989), Mike Compton (1992) and Aaron Beasley (1995). Don Nehlen was the coach of the year for 1989 and Eric deGroh was the Anson Mount Scholar-Athlete winner for 1998.

Mozes began his West Virginia career as a guard, where he excelled before moving to center as a junior. He will likely be the highest-rated Mountaineer in the 2007 NFL Draft.
