A Former Redskins Great Un-Retires His Stephen F. Austin Jersey

Washington-redskins-mark-moseley-194-topps-nfl-1983-american-football-trading-card-46199-p Dallas Cowboys fans can agree to hate all things Washington Redskins, but every football fan should love former Redskins kicker Mark Moseley because he's one of the last straight-on kickers in NFL history. 

And any player who willingly wore a single bar on his helmet was obviously confident in his own skin.

On Friday, Moseley did something pretty cool for his alma mater - Stephen F. Austin University. Moseley agreed to have his No. 10 un-retired to allow Joe Minden to wear it. No Lumberjack had worn this number since the early '80s.

According to a press release, the Washington Redskins all-time leading scorer (1,207 points), Moseley became the only kicker to win the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award in 1982. Known as the league’s last straight-on kicker, Moseley was successful on 65 percent of his field goal attempts (300-of-457) and 94 percent of his extra-point attempts. Moseley concluded his career with 1,382 career points, led the NFL in scoring four times and was an all-pro selection.

“It was a great honor to know that Stephen F. Austin thought enough of my career there, and then what I did in the NFL to want to retire my number,” Moseley said in a press release. “I take great pride in that. I hope that the number will carry with it the respect and integrity in how I tried to carry myself. ”

Ap8301310598 Minden is a freshman from Coppell. And he's a quarterback. And he was highly recruited, hence the reason to un-retire No. 10. That's the number he wore as junior and senior at Coppell.

I hope he has the man junk to do what Moseley did and wear just a single bar on his helmet.
