CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. – Richmond native and Meadowbrook High School graduate, Morgan Moses, will have his jersey retired by the school Friday night.

The starting right tackle of the Washington Redskins is in his third season in the NFL after being drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Moses competed for the Meadowbrook Monarchs on both the offensive and defensive lines from 2006-’09. He earned several accolades during his time there including two-time All-District, two-time All-Region, two-time All-State and Parade and SuperPrep All-America honors.

Moses will have his jersey retired Friday at a ceremony during halftime of Meadowbrook’s varsity football game.

The ceremony will take place on the team’s football field.
