CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman wide receiver Justice Shelton-Mosley of the No. 19/21 Harvard football team has been named to the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) National FCS Special Teams Watch List as a punt returner.
A native of Sacramento, California, Shelton-Mosley, who was also added to the CFPA National Freshman Performer of the Year Watch List, has earned Ivy League Rookie of the Week on three-straight occasions (Nov. 2, Nov. 9 and Nov. 16). Following Harvard's 24-16 win at Columbia Nov. 7 in which Shelton-Mosley racked up 270 all-purpose yards, including 131 receiving yards and 121 punt return yards, and an 86-yard score, he was tabbed Ivy Rookie of the Week, Co-Offensive Player of the Week and Special Teams Player of the Week. Shelton-Mosley became the first freshman to earn all three honors in a week since the Rookie of the Week award came into existence in 2002.
Amassing 190 yards on 10 punt returns this fall, Shelton-Mosley leads the Ivy League in punt return average (19.0.). He has also returned nine kickoffs for 305 yards (33.9 avg.) and has made 35 receptions for 470 yards and four touchdowns. Against Penn Nov. 14, Shelton-Mosley threw a 28-yard TD pass to Anthony Firkser in the second quarter.
Shelton-Mosley and the Crimson will travel to Yale for the 132nd playing of The Game Saturday, Nov. 21. Kickoff is set for 2:35 p.m. and The Game will be broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network. Harvard can clinch a share of its third-straight Ivy League title with a victory.
