GREEN RIVER — Recent Green River High School graduate Tanner Mosely signed his national letter of intent on Tuesday, May 23, to continue his football career at Concordia University in Chicago.
For Mosely, the decision was an easy one. He already has friends on campus, he likes the coaches and the idea of heading east to explore another area of the country interests him.
“First, I have a friend going there as well. They also have what I want to study, which is kinesiology because I want to be an athletic trainer after football so I can stay in the athletic department because I just love sports,” he said.
“The coaches were also a big reason why I chose Concordia. From the first day of recruiting, they were always in touch with me to see what I was doing and how my seasons were going. We kind of made a bond a little bit.”
Chicago offers plenty of adventure for Mosely, who is looking forward to the change of scenery.
“For me, personally, that was my whole goal. I wanted to go somewhere new. I’ve been to places on the west coast, but I’ve never traveled east before, so I want to explore all of the stuff they got over there. I just want to explore new places,” he said.
Mosely plays offensive line as either a center or guard. While he said he might not be the biggest lineman, he uses his quickness and mind to keep the defense from getting to the quarterback.
“For a lineman, I’m pretty agile. I’m quick. I can get around easily, keeping my head on a swivel and looking for any blitzes. I believe my strength is my agility,” he said.
Mosely loves spending time with his friends and that’s his favorite memory of Green River High School.
He remembered one game against Cody High School when he and his friends were hanging out in the hotel room.
He just enjoyed the time he got to spend with his friends.
