OVERVIEW

Much like his brother before him, Washington Redskins standout Santana Moss, Sinorice has proven that big things come in small packages. A key contributor on special teams since his freshman year, Moss did not equal the production his brother provided Miami during his career, but he was still a valuable part of the team's explosive offense. At Carol City High School, Sinorice was a dangerous triple-threat athlete as a standout receiver in a run-oriented offense. He earned second-team All-Dade honors as a senior, adding All-Region accolades from Student Sports magazine and Prep Star. Florida Prep Football ranked Moss seventh among the state of Florida's wide receivers and twenty-seventh overall. He also ranked thirteenth on the Miami-Dade Top 20 list according to the Miami Herald. As a senior, Moss caught 23 passes for 506 yards and eight touchdowns, rushed for 86 yards on two carries and also punted 12 times for a 29-yard average (long of 44). His best game as a senior was a four-catch, 132-yard, two-touchdown outing against Goleman High. As a junior, Sinorice grabbed 18 passes for 432 yards and six touchdowns. Moss was also an accomplished track athlete who ran a 10.99 100-meter dash at the USATF Junior National Championships as a junior. He had a personal best long jump of 22 feet, 11 inches, as a freshman and graduated as an Honor Roll student. As a true freshman at Miami, Moss appeared in twelve games, seeing most of his action on special teams. He recorded four tackles and gained 30 yards on three receptions. He again served in a reserve role as a sophomore, totaling 111 yards on eight catches (13.9 avg) while also gaining 24 yards on a kickoff return. In 2004, Sinorice started twice at split end and two more times at flanker. Moss ranked fourth on the team with 20 receptions for 351 yards (17.5 avg) and three touchdowns. He also posted four solo tackles and gained 19 yards on a punt return. Moss started eight games at flanker during his final season. He led the team with 32 catches for 554 yards (17.3 avg) and five touchdowns through ten contests. He added 44 yards on six carries, 88 yards on five kickoff returns and posted two solo tackles.
