Childhood Friends Mosley and Marshall Continue Football Career Together at W&M

Posted: Updated:

Monticello Football stars Jhalil Mosley and Sam Marshall have been stepping onto the same field since they were five years-old and now they will be stepping into a bigger arena.

Both guys will play for William and Mary beginning this Fall.  The two are great friends.

Marshall says, "I wouldn't say he's got any more growing up to do but she could definitely be more subtle with himself."

Mosley says, "Yeah, I'll have somebody to keep me grounded down there.  He won't let me get too wild."

It started while playing little league baseball.

Mosley says, "I mean he's definitely gotten bigger, taller. You know, eating good."

And continued hitting the turf on Friday nights playing football for the Monticello Mustangs.

Marshall says, "It doesn't get much better than high school football."

Now they will enter a bigger arena.

Mosley says, "We had talked about it when we were younger but we never thought it would actually be an option but it goes to show what hard work does for you."

Mosley and Marshall have decided to continue their football career at William and Mary.

Mosley:"Bring a little flavor to it down there. We hope to spice it up a little bit."

As a quarterback at Monticello, Mosley threw for 4,364 yards and 48 touchdowns while Marshall the 6'3'' 285 pound center was named first team all state.  Both have become accustom to winning as a mustang but hope to make an immediate impact as two of the tribes newest members.

Mosley says, "They told me I was a game changer. I've been that my whole high school career. I just want to go to the college level and be a game changer as well."

Marshall says, "I want to get on the field. I want to play. Win games, win championships."

The duo says their stoked to see what their chemistry on and off the field can add to the William and Mary Football program.

Mosley says, "Ever since I was little playing CAYFL, Pop Warner, I always had dreams of playing on the next level and its come true. Its going to be a reality now.

"I would love to play with him another five years and hopefully win a few more games with him" said Marshall.
