CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Justice Shelton-Mosley and Noah Reimers of the No. 12/13 Harvard football team have been selected to the College Football Performance Awards National Freshman Performer of the Year Watch List.

Shelton-Mosley and Reimers were two of 32 freshmen from around the country, and the only two from the Ivy League, honored on the watch list.

A wide receiver from Sacramento, California, Shelton-Mosley, who became the first Harvard freshman to win the New England Football Writers' Association Gold Helmet Award this week, has caught 31 passes for 459 yards and four touchdowns on the season, ranking second on the Crimson in all four categories.

In Harvard's win at Columbia Nov. 7, Shelton-Mosley amassed 270 all-purpose yards and had an 86-yard punt return for a touchdown, the third-longest in school history. He has been named Ivy League Rookie of the Week in each of the last two weeks and also earned Ivy Special Teams and Offensive Player of the Week honors this week, becoming the first freshman in conference history to win all three honors in a single week. Shelton-Mosley, who leads the Ancient Eight in punt return average (19.0), was also the STATS FCS National Freshman Player of the Week Nov. 9.

Reimers, who hails from Leesburg, Virginia, has rushed for 253 yards and six touchdowns this fall. The running back was selected as Ivy Rookie of the Week Sept. 28 and Oct. 5 after scoring two touchdowns and amassing 80 yards vs. Brown and finding the endzone three times and finishing with 64 yards on the ground vs. Georgetown, respectively.

Harvard has won 22-straight games and is tied with Ohio State for the longest win streak in Division I. The Crimson has also claimed 16-consecutive Ivy League victories and 14-straight road wins, both program records.

The Crimson (8-0, 5-0 Ivy) hosts Penn (5-3, 4-1) in a crucial Ivy League contest on the American Sports Network and Ivy League Digital Network Saturday, Nov. 14 at 12 p.m. Harvard can clinch at least a share of its third-straight Ivy title with a victory.
