Chancellor (Fredericksburg, VA) offensive lineman Steven Moss has been offered by East Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina and Virginia Tech. Not bad, especially considering the fact that he’s just a sophomore.
“I was surprised I got offers from all those schools, but I like them all the same,” said the 6’5″, 275-pound Moss, who is also drawing serious interest from Virginia and West Virginia. “I can’t let my head get big, though. I have to keep working because there is always someone bigger and better than you.
“All I think about is being a better player and making our team a better team.”
Moss played on Chancellor’s junior varsity as well as the varsity his freshman year. This past season, he was a full-time starter at right tackle on the varsity squad.
“I felt like I stepped up to what was needed of me,” Moss said when asked to assess his first full year on the varsity level. “When I got on the field, I just got mad. That’s the thing I do. That’s what coaches tell me they like about me. I want to run guys into the ground.”
College coaches like Moss’ attitude, but they also like his physical abilities.
“Coach [Frank] Beamer said he liked five qualities most about me. He said I was relentless, I make pancake blocks, I move well in open space, I move my feet well, and I have an angry and tough attitude,” Moss said.
When it comes to succeeding on the offensive line, Moss’ philosophy is simple.
“I focus on the initial start,” he said. “Basically, what I taught myself is that the first two steps off the line decide who wins. I focus on the initial start and then running the guy off as far as I can until I hear the whistle.”
