Auburn quarterback Clint Moseley, has decided to give up football. Plagued by injuries for most of his three years at Auburn, the former signal caller decided to not return for his senior season.
He made the decision reportedly after meeting with new Offensive Coordinator Rhett Lashlee. Moseley started six games his sophomore year but was sidelined with shoulder and ankle injuries. He started the 2011 Chik-Fil-a Bowl but could not finish due to injuries.
He started three games as a junior but shoulder problems again hampered his progress and an ankle injury ended his season. Sources say he still plans to stay at Auburn and graduate.
One thing that can be said about Moseley, is that he was a gamer. Anyone who saw his first career start would have to agree with that statement. He was thrown to the wolves against No.1 LSU in Death Valley. Clint was pounded by the purple defense again and again yet he kept getting back up and wound up completing 12-of-20 passes for 145 yards.
He came back the next week to post his best game when he completed 12 of 15 passes for 160 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 41-23 win over the Ole Miss Rebels.
Last year, he completed 38 of 60 passes for 373 yards and a touchdown before his season ended. Clint has definitely earned the mantra of an ‘Auburn Man’ and we’re glad to see he is going to finish his Auburn degree.
War Eagle Clint!
