Justice Shelton-Mosley had 270 all-purpose yards at Columbia (Lafayette College).

PRINCETON, N.J. – Harvard football freshman Justice Shelton-Mosley was named the STATS FCS National Freshman Player of the Week, it was announced Monday.

Shelton-Mosley continued to rack up the weekly honors after earning the Ivy League Offensive, Rookie and Co-Special Teams Player of the Week awards, becoming the first freshman to do so since the Ancient Eight created the Rookie accolade. 

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. 14, 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.
