He was always the best. Until Josh McDaniels told him he wasn’t.

At the age of 9, Jarvis Moss set his sights on playing in the NFL. He achieved that goal as the Denver Broncos first round draft pick in 2007. Mike Shanahan even moved up to get the defensive end coming off a BCS Championship with Florida under Urban Meyer. Everyone had high expectations for Jarvis, including himself. Afterall, he’d made it through so much get to the NFL. For instance, when he was being recruited in high school, Jarvis stepped onto a plane for the first time and went by himself for his college visits. Not because his parents didn’t support him, but because they were both incarcerated.

The NFL was tough. His rookie season, Jarvis broke his shin, went on injured reserve and to top off the pressure meter, became a dad. In November of 2010, he was cut and when he was done with football a year later, he was disgruntled with the game and wanted nothing to do with it. Until his son started playing. Today, Jarvis is an assistant coach at Cherry Creek High School where Noah is a freshman. He also helps coach with Phenom Academy a sports academy within the Phenom Phoundation, a non-profit organization.
