Colleton County Cougar Football standout Jeremiah Mosley announced his decision Monday Feb. 10 to continue his academic and football career at NAIA Allen University in Columbia. Mosley, who has had a football in his hands since he was five years old, hopes to contribute at wide receiver for the Yellow Jackets in the fall.
Fielding an additional offer from Palmetto Prep School, Mosley made his verbal commitment February 7. “I learned about a mid-January Recruiting Day for Allen University from Cougar Assistant Coach Rowes,” said Mosley. “I knew it was the right fit for me after actually talking to the coaches and seeing how much they push you to be nothing but the best you can be, whether it is on the field or in the classroom.
“Academics also played a role in my decision, as you can’t play if you don’t have the grades,” said Mosley. “I feel I can be successful there in every way. I hope to come in as a freshman and keep setting high goals for myself and settle for nothing but the best.”
Lettering four years for the Cougar varsity squad, Mosley was twice-named All-Region. In addition, he participated in basketball and track and field for Colleton County.
“I want to thank Coach Jay Davis, Coach Howell, Coach Coby Peeler and Coach Singleton for their help and for teaching me to keep going after mistakes,” said Mosley. “I would like to thank God first for giving me the ability to be able to perform on the field and in the classroom. Also, I would like you think my parents for being there for me and pushing me to strive for nothing but greatness.”
Mosley is the son of Michael and Patriese Mosley. He maintains a 3.4 GPA and is planning to pursue a degree in business management.
