The Waldorf Warriors remained one of the best football programs in the nation as the NAIA released its Postseason Top 25 Coaches Poll last week, and the Warriors remained No. 23 in the country in that poll.

Waldorf, which finished the season with a 7-3 record and was led by three All-American players, earned 49 points in the final poll of 2019.

Two-time national champion Morningside earned the No. 1 following its 40-38 victory in Saturday’s national championship game against Marian.

Waldorf football’s Mosley named an AP All-American

The Waldorf football team earned another honor last week as Warrior offensive lineman Robert Mosley was named an All-American.

The senior lineman becomes the third Waldorf All-American honored for his play this fall, as Mosley was named to the Associated Press’ NAIA All-American Second Team.

The honor is the first for Mosley who joins teammates Hilton “Bo” Joseph and Ryan Martinez in being named All-American this fall, as Joseph and Martinez were named Honorable Mention All-Americans by the NAIA coaches earlier this month.

The offensive lineman from Tampa, Fla., is a three-time Dacotah Bank/North Star Athletic Association All-Conference performer who was named to the First Team as a junior and senior.

The award is just another in the phenomenal season for the Warrior football team which saw Mosley and teammates Joseph, Caleb Wilson and Cameron Newsome all play in the inaugural NAIA Senior Classic, that saw Joseph and Zach Throne named CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, and saw the Waldorf football team climbed as high as No. 23 in the NAIA Top 25 Coaches Poll, to mention just the program’s top national honors.
