Butler said,

“Rest In Peace & Power Brent,” “You made me believe that you could accomplish anything from the 262. #RoseBowlMVP”.

Fletcher tweeted Sunday,

“We did a thing in our day,” “I hate that we did not become friends in time (to) appreciate our magic. But we did work it out in time. You were one of the best to ever do it. Respect.”

Early Life

Brent Moss was born in Racine, Wisconsin on January 30, 1972(aged 50). He holds an American nationality. His Zodiac sign is Aquarius.

At Racine Park High School in Racine, Wisconsin, where he played football for three years (1986-1989) and carried the number 31, Brent Moss ran for more than 5,000 yards. As a junior on the grass of Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin, on November 12, 1988, Moss ran for 202 yards and three touchdowns during the Division I Wisconsin WIAA State Football Championship Game.

Due to this, Wisconsin’s top divisional football team, the Racine Park Panthers, defeated the Superior Spartans 34–14 and won the state championship. The game’s MVP, Moss eventually earned a spot on the first team of the State (WIAA). Moss led the Panthers to the state semifinal game in 1989 at Racine Park, earning first-team All-State (WIAA) honors as well.

The 5’9″, 205-pound tailback helped the Badgers win the Big Ten Conference in 1993 and get to their first Rose Bowl since 1963. The Badgers won the Rose Bowl for the first time ever by defeating the 13th-ranked UCLA Bruins 21-16.

MVP Honors

Moss contributed significantly to the victory by running for 158 yards and two touchdowns, earning MVP honors. He received the Silver Football, given by the Chicago Tribune as the Big Ten player of the year for 1993, as well as being chosen as the Big Ten’s most valuable player that year.

He was invited to the Miami Dolphins training camp even though he wasn’t selected the following year. Moss signed with the St. Louis Rams after being released, and in the 1995 campaign, he gained 90 yards on 22 carries. He was released by the Rams during the team’s 1996 summer training camp, and this was his only time on the field in the National Football League.

The 1997 off-season stint with the Green Bay Packers and brief stays in the World League of American Football, Arena Football League, and XFL came after that. In July 2007, Moss made his comeback to football with the Racine Raiders of his hometown’s minor league after a seven-year absence that began in 2000.
