Sinorice Moss

Sinorice Moss On His Way To Becoming An Actor

The New York Giants drafted wide receiver Sinorice Moss in the second round of the 2006 NFL draft with the hope that his blazing speed would allow him to develop into a dominant slot receiver. To make a long story short, Moss' career was marred by a slew on injuries that never allowed him to emerge as a consistently productive member of the roster. Moss did play in 13 games in 2007, the year that Big Blue shocked the world and took home a Lombardi Trophy. However, after suffering from a sports hernia prior to the 2010 season, Moss was placed on the injured reserve and subsequently released after receiving an injury settlement.

Moss attempted to continue his football career elsewhere, namely with the Philadelphia Eagles and Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League. Neither opportunity yielded a job opportunity, as Moss has been out of football for the last several months. With Moss' football career likely in his rearview mirror, he's began focusing his time on establishing an acting career.

In 2006, before the NFL became a realistic career path, Moss made his acting debut as an extra on "General Hospital". He took a break to focus on football over the next several years, until appearing as Daniel in a short drama entitled "This Time," which documented a soldiers' attempt to win back his wife after returning from war. Moss is also credited as an executive producer on the film.

Lastly, Moss played a small role in a 2012 film entitled "The Last Fall," which ironically enough, chronicles a professional football player's attempt to move on in life after his time in the NFL is prematurely cut short.

Obviously, Sinorice Moss is not the next Tom Cruise or Tyler Perry. However, it's encouraging to know that he's found a small niche in his life to help him stay active without playing professional football. For every Hakeem Nicks or Victor Cruz who makes it big time in the NFL, there are several other players who, for one reason or another, wash out of the league. Moss was unfortunately one of those players, but his ability to shift his focus elsewhere in life is a lesson that many of former athletes can learn from.

After playing football for one's entire life, it's understandably difficult to cope with washing out of the professional ranks at a young age. Many players do so without a college degree, without a viable support system, without another source of income and no idea how to adjust their standard of living to reflect their new, and likely significantly reduced salary. Nobody knows how Sinorice Moss has personally with being out of the league, but he seems to have found a new passion in life to apply himself to. That's more than most other former NFL athletes can say for themselves.

South Miami LB Korey Moss following in his family’s footsteps

Santana Moss, Sinorice Moss and DeMarcus Van Dyke all used their speed to make it to the NFL.

Korey Moss is hoping his strength will be the ticket to follow in his family’s footsteps.

Moss, a 5-9, 220-pound senior linebacker at South Miami, is the nephew of the Moss brothers — stars at Carol City and the University of Miami — and a cousin of Van Dyke, a former Miami Monsignor Pace star who plays with the Oakland Raiders.

“I’m one of the biggest ones in the family,” Moss said. “My uncles and my cousin were fast and played wide receiver in high school. But I’m the powerful one. I’m the one that likes to kill the guy running with the ball.”

Moss showed his strength and skill as a linebacker to record more than 100 tackles and 10 sacks last season in a breakout year for him and the Cobras.

Moss led Miami-Dade County in tackles for the first seven weeks of last season before being hobbled by an ankle injury. His efforts were key during a turnaround season in which South Miami won its first playoff game since 1987.

Moss keeps in contact with Santana when his schedule with the Washington Redskins permits, and with Sinorice, who currently plays for Saskatchewan in the Canadian Football League.

Although Korey said he doesn’t have a college picked out yet, the University of Miami, where his three famous relatives played, is a school he grew up watching.

“Even though I’m not the same type of player they are, I learned a lot from watching them growing up,” said Moss, who would like to study veterinary medicine in college. “They’ve taught me how to stay focused when I’m on the field and what to do off it so I can make it big in life.”

Moss has yet to attract offers from major colleges but is hoping a big senior season to follow up last year’s performance will draw more attention from college recruiters.

Moss will still be a key cog for South Miami, which changed coaches in the offseason, hiring David Gray following the departure of Lamont Green to Southridge. Gray inherits a defense (led by Moss and senior linebacker Matt Delavega) that returns several starters.

The Cobras will have to account for the loss of some major weapons on offense because quarterback and all-around athlete A.J. Leggett graduated and leading running back Johnny Hankins transferred.

If a new quarterback emerges, he will have a solid receiving core led by junior Keyshaun Taylor.

Moss believes there is still enough talent to keep the Cobras in contention for another playoff run in District 14-8A.

Columbus is the heavy favorite to win the district again, coming off a state semifinal appearance in what was its best season since 1982.

But the Cobras (9-3 in 2011) appear to have as good a chance as last year to vie for the runner-up spot with Coral Gables, Miami High and Coral Park.

“We lost our coach from last year, but we’ve been doing well with Coach Gray, and we pretty much have the same team,” Moss said. “We expect another great season if we keep showing our dedication and heart.”

Sinorice Moss anxious to play for the Roughriders

Former New York Giants receiver Sinorice Moss is to make his pre-season debut with the Roughriders on Friday against the visiting Calgary Stampeders. Moss missed the Riders’ pre-season opener in B.C. with a groin injury. Here is what he had to say about suiting up for the Riders on Friday:

How itchy are you to finally get a chance to play in one of these CFL games that you’ve heard so much about? “I’m very excited — very, very anxious and very excited. I’ve been preparing myself for a couple of weeks now. To finally have an opportunity to come out here and be special for the team is great excitement for myself. Playing football up here is amazing and an adrenalin rush, and something that I’m anxious to be a part of.’’

What has piqued your curiosity in particular? “Just being out in the atmosphere. I heard the city of Regina and Saskatchewan and the fans are amazing, so I just want to be out here in the atmosphere and feel the energy of the fans and come out here and have a great game.’’

Has it been a little frustrating not getting the opportunity until now and having one pre-season game pass? “I won’t say it made me upset at all or anything. I’ve been preparing myself in practice and making a lot of plays in practice and doing what I have to do to learn the system. Now I finally have a game to come out here and play and showcase my talents. That’s what it’s all about.’’

What do you want people to see? What do you want people to be saying about you after tomorrow’s game? “I really don’t listen to what people have to say. I just want to come up here and be a key acquisition for this team, come out here and make some plays and, when given the opportunity, go out and make the best of it.’’

When the Riders played in B.C., you were resting a minor groin injury, right? “Yes. They thought it was best for me not to participate in that game. It was the coaches’ decision. Now it’s my time to come out here and have some fun.’’
