Dusty Mosier to play football, run track at TLU
Stockdale senior Dusty Mosier signs his letter of intent to Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, where he will play football and run track. Mosier is joined by his mother, Becky, and Stockdale Athletic Director Josh West.
STOCKDALE -- “Dusty can flat fly,” said Stockdale Athletic Director Josh West.
OK, so maybe Stockdale senior Dusty Mosier can’t literally fly, but he has one of those coaching intangibles -- the God-given ability to run really, really fast.
Mosier is a gifted multi-sport athlete, and will have the rare opportunity to continue competing in two sports at the collegiate level as a member of the Texas Lutheran University Bulldog football and track teams.
On the football field, Mosier will compete for a spot as a slot receiver. With great hands and speed, it’s a natural fit. During track season, he will continue his sprinting ways, likely competing in the 100-meter dash and as a member of one of the sprint relay teams.
While there were other options for Mosier, including the University of the Incarnate Word and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Mosier ultimately decided on TLU because of its proximity to home. Still, while only a short drive from Stockdale to Seguin, he is greatly looking forward to living life on his own.
Mosier admits he will miss his mother, his family, and of course, the coaches at Stockdale High School. The coaches have been a great influence in his life, so much so that he has decided to become a coach and teacher himself. Mosier will major in kinesiology as a steppingstone toward attaining his goal.
As a multi-sport athlete, Mosier has many great memories in uniform with Stockdale, but none eclipses the feeling he got while competing at the Texas Relays this year. Mosier admitted to being a bit awestruck by the thousands of spectators in the stands, and said he was excited for the opportunity to race against the state’s top runners.
That competition will get even tougher at the collegiate level, but Mosier is ready for the challenge. He said his early goal is to make the starting football team as soon as possible, and then to continue improving on the track. He has also set a goal for maintaining a high level of academic achievement.
Assuming he continues to work as he did in high school, success is certain to find its way to Mosier at TLU. West went on to describe Mosier as a “great kid,” and said that he is “very coachable.” West also pointed out that he is a great student, and that he will be sorely missed at Stockdale High School.
West isn’t the only one who is proud of Mosier, and who will miss him around campus, though.
“Dusty’s father and I could not be more proud of Dusty and all that he has accomplished during his high school years,” his mother, Becky, said. “He has worked very hard for all that he has achieved and we are very pleased with his choice to join the TLU family. We are very excited to see what the next four years holds for him.”
