Moss played college football for Marshall University, and twice earned All-America honors. He also played center field for the baseball team. Moss led the DuPont Panthers to back-to-back state championships in 1992 and 1993. He was a star at wide receiver, but also played free safety, returned kickoffs and punts, and was the team’s kicker and punter. Parade magazine named him to their annual All-American high school football team in 1995. In 2009, Parade named him one of the 50 greatest highSchool football players of all time. Moss is a member of the College Football Hall Of Fame, which was established in 1998. He has been inducted in the Pro-Football Hall of Famer class of 2013. He won two Super Bowls, XLII with the Patriots and XLVII with the 49ers, both losses. His brother Eric played offensive tackle for the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders. Moss has two children, a daughter and a son-in-law, both of whom have played in the NFL. He currently lives in West Virginia with his wife and two children. The couple have a son and a daughter who were born in 2008 and 2009 respectively. Moss also has a son who was born in 2010. He attended DuPont High School, one of two schools that later consolidated into Riverside High School.
He excelled in football, basketball, baseball, and track. In addition to playing football at DuPont, Moss was twice named West Virginia Player of the Year in basketball, where he was a teammate of future NBA player Jason Williams. After originally signing a letter of intent to play college football with Notre Dame in 1995, Moss took part in a racially charged fight at his high school that left one person hospitalized. On August 1, 1995, he pleaded guilty to two counts of misdemeanor battery and was sentenced to 30 days behind bars at the South Virginia Central Regional Jail. Because Notre Dame officials suggested he attend another high-profile college football program, Moss would be required to serve his remaining 27 days in jail starting that night. He later completed his education at Cabell High School in Charleston, West Virginia. In October 2010, Moss returned to the Vikings in a trade from the Patriots but was waived less than a month later. After sitting out the 2011 season, Moss signed a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers in 2012 before retiring following the season. In his senior season of basketball, Moss averaged 30. 2 points, 13. 7 rebounds, 5. 1 steals, 3. 8 blocks, and 3. 1 assists while shooting 60% from field; he scored a school-record 1,713 career points. In 2013, Moss played for the Tennessee Titans.
