Yuma High’s Mosqueda will join brother at Ripon College

Yuma High School senior Anthony Mosqueda signed a letter of intent Thursday, May 17, 2018 to play football at Ripon College in Wisconsin.  

“Anthony played three sides of the ball for us,” said longtime YHS football coach Curt Weber. “He was primarily a safety, but he played receiver and was an All-Region punter and kicker. He wore a lot of hats and contributed in a lot of different ways.”

Mosqueda, who named first team All-Region in back-to-back seasons, is expected to compete for spot in the defensive backfield as well as on special teams for the Red Hawks in the fall. He will follow the footsteps of his brother, Armando, who graduated from Yuma High in 2015, and is entering his third season at Ripon.

“It’s a pretty unique situation for brothers to get to play together at the college level,” Weber said. “Armando has gone half way across the country to establish himself and that’s to Anthony’s advantage. He just has to follow the mold of what his brother started.”

The Red Hawks finished the 2017 season with a 5-5 record, ending the season on a three-game winning streak.
