Big Rapids, Mich. - Senior linebacker Tayo Moss (South Rockwood/Monroe St. Mary's) of the Ferris State University football team has been chosen as one of the top three players to watch in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) this fall by the Beyond Sports College Network.
The online publication listed three players from each of the respective Division II conferences on its preseason players to watch list and Moss was tabbed in the GLIAC along with Saginaw Valley State quarterback Jonathon Jennings and Wayne State linebcker Ed Viverette.
The articles notes, "Moss is a rock in the middle of the Ferris State defense. He accumulated 118 tackles last season and is due for big things again in 2012."
A 2011 All-GLIAC First Team selection, Moss received all-conference recognition for the first time last fall after finishing the 2011 regular-season campaign as the GLIAC's leading tackler (10.7 tpg.) with 35 solo stops and 85 assisted hits for 118 total tackles. Moss had 10 tackles or more in seven games, including the last three of the season when he twice had 15 stops or more.
Additionally, Moss was honored in 2011 as a member of the Don Hansen Division II All-Super Region Three Second Team on the defensive side.
Ferris State will officially begin the 2012 season under first-year head coach Tony Annese on the road with its lone non-league game on Thursday, Aug. 30, at the University of St. Francis (Ill.) in Joliet, Ill.
The Bulldogs' 11-game schedule in 2012 features five home contests at FSU's Top Taggart Field along with six consecutive night games to open the campaign. Ferris State's home opener is scheduled for Sept. 15 when the Ashland Eagles make the trip to Big Rapids to square off against the Bulldogs. Kickoff for the initial home game is slated for 7 p.m. (ET) under the lights.
