Libertyville, Ill. four star ranked offensive guard prospect David Moosman (6-foot-5, 270 pounds) will be very easy to spot in the halls around Libertyville High School this week. Moosman will be the 6-foot-5 kid walking on air after helping the Wildcats win it's first ever IHSA state football championship. Libertyville defeated Cary-Grove 13-3 last Saturday night to win the Class 7A state title.
"It feels great to win a state title," Moosman said. "We had a parade on Sunday afternoon around town, then we had a big rally after wards. The smile hasn't left my face yet and probably won't for awhile."
"It was an amazing feeling to see all of our team's hard work pay off with a win in Champaign. We really didn't want to come back without a title for two years in a row, that's for sure. I'm just so happy for so many of my teammates who put in so much hard work and effort, as well as for our coaches. We set a goal of winning the state title right around this time last year (after Libertyville lost in overtime in the 2003 Class 7A state title game to Oswego) and being able to accomplish that goal is just awesome."
Moosman will have very little time to enjoy his state title.
"I'm having four head coaches that will be making in home visits this week. Iowa, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and Michigan are all scheduled to be here this week. I'm also starting to get ready for my wrestling season today. It's going to be a very busy week for me this week, but I'm still happy about being a state champion."
While Moosman will certainly listen to each coach in his home this week, don't expect Moosman to be too overwhelmed by the coaches sales pitches.
"It's a good chance to get to know the head coaches better on my turf, but the actual official visits will be the deciding factor for me in decided on my final college choice. My official visit will no question be a major factor for me."
Moosman has official visits set for Wisconsin on December 3rd, Michigan on December 10th, Iowa on December 17th and Notre Dame on January 15th.
