LAKE WORTH – Production means everything to Isaac Moss.
The Lake Worth 2017 defensive back feels that he should be viewed as one of the area’s best at his position. Looking at what he accomplished in his junior season, Moss registered 70 tackles (5 TFL), 2 forced fumbles, 1 interception, and 1 blocked punt in 10 games for the Trojans.
Though Moss does not have an offer at this point, he has garnered serious interest from the likes of Missouri, Minnesota, Louisville, Syracuse, Ohio, and FAU.
Speaking of FAU in particular, Moss was impressive at a recent individual camp, as evidenced by the fact he had no balls caught on him in 1-on-1 drills.
“I felt like the FAU camp really showed me how it’s going to be at the next level,” he said. “Everything is fast paced. It’s just the way I like it.”
The 6’0″, 195-pound defensive back has had a relatively productive summer in more ways than one. In the Brandon Flowers 7-on-7 Tournament, which took place on June 25 in Delray Beach, he recorded 7 pass breakups on defense and 4 touchdowns on offense.
Moss also participated in the Palm Beach Shootout this past weekend with the Trojans, who advanced to the quarterfinals of the July 16 tournament.
“I want to showcase myself as an athlete,” he said. “I like to attack the ball when it’s in the air. I like to make the competition uncomfortable.”
Moss is pining for the opportunity to give it his all this upcoming season for Lake Worth. He wants to record at least 100 tackles and 10 interceptions as a senior.
“I’m going to do my best to be a leader for our defense,” he said. “I want college coaches to see what I can do on the field. I have highlights to prove it, but I guess they want to see more.”
In a sense, Moss has already proven his worth as a defensive back. One could look at his May 27 spring game against Wellington (28-21 win) as proof, when he registered 10 tackles (4 TFL), 1 forced fumble, and 5 pass breakups.
At the end of the day, Moss wants to see himself and him team come out on top.
“We’re not going to play around with our opponents,” he said. “We’re not the same team as last year. We continue to get better everyday with our team workouts. We just want to win games on Friday nights and make a nice playoff run. Hopefully we can win a state ring.”
Lake Worth (4-6 last season) is in District 10-8A with Atlantic (defending champion), Boca Raton (district runner-up last year), John I. Leonard, Park Vista, Santaluces, and Spanish River. We’ll see if the Trojans can snag one of the two 10-8A playoff spots in November.
Stay tuned for further updates on Moss as he looks to build upon his success from the past several months at Lake Worth.
