Former Bulldog Moses Dies In House Fire

ATHENS, Ga. — Quentin Moses, was a four-year letterwinner and standout defensive end for the Georgia Bulldogs from 2003-06, died overnight in a house fire.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Quentin’s family,” said Greg McGarity, UGA’s J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics. “We are shocked and saddened by this tragic news. Quentin was an outstanding representative of not only the University of Georgia but also his hometown of Athens. On behalf UGA Athletics, we extend our most sincere condolences to his family.”

Moses was a defensive MVP for Georgia’s 2005 SEC Championship team and a key reserve on the Bulldogs’ squad that captured the 2003 SEC Eastern Division title. All told, he recorded 133 career tackles over four seasons, many of those behind the line of scrimmage.

Among Georgia’s career leaders, Moses ranks second in tackles for loss with 44.5 and seventh in career sacks with 25.0. As a junior in 2005, Moses posted 20.5 TFLs and 11.5 sacks, tallies that rank No. 3 and No. 8, respectively, among the Bulldogs’ single-season records.

An Athens native and graduate of Cedar Shoals High School, Moses was named to the SEC’s All-Freshman team in 2003 and first-team All-SEC by both league coaches and the Associated Press in 2005.

Moses was a standout in the community as well. He was named to the American Football Coaches Association’s (AFCA) Good Works Team as a senior in 2006.

Moses was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the 2006 NFL Draft and went on to play with the Arizona Cardinals in 2007 and the Miami Dolphins from 2007-10.
