Shelton-Mosley earns Offensive, Rookie and Co-Special Teams Player of the Week awards.

PRINCETON, N.J. – Harvard football freshman Justice Shelton-Mosley earned the Ivy League Offensive, Rookie and Co-Special Teams Player of the Week awards after posting a break-out game against Columbia this weekend.

Shelton-Mosley is the first freshman to win three Ivy League weekly awards in the same week since the League added the Rookie of the Week award beginning with the 2002 season. It marks the 10th time that a Rookie of the Week has also earned another award. Shelton-Mosley is the eighth different player to be so honored. 

Shelton-Mosley shares the Special Teams Player of the Week award with Donald Panciello of Penn.

In Harvard's 24-16 win at Columbia, Shelton-Mosley accumulated 270 all-purpose yards, the most since Paul Stanton, Jr. had 275 at Penn on Nov. 15, 2014. Shelton-Mosley had 131 receiving yards, 121 punt return yards and 18 kick return yards. The Sacramento, California product corralled eight catches, including a 26-yard TD grab.

Shelton-Mosley added an 86-yard punt return for a score in the fourth quarter. The punt return was the third-longest for a TD in school history, helping the Crimson win its 22nd-straight game, including its program-record 16th-consecutive Ivy League game and 14th-straight road win.

The Crimson returns to Harvard Stadium for Senior Day Saturday, Nov. 14 against Penn.
