The Dickinson State football team has had good luck with wide receivers from Mott. They’ll try and go 3-for-3 with Chad Mosbrucker.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound senior said Tuesday that he hasn’t signed yet, but is coming to DSU next fall to play football and may also try his hand at baseball.
“I like the coaching staff up there,” Mosbrucker said. “I’ve been going to Hawk games since I was young and I always dreamed about playing there. I like it up there.”
Mosbrucker had 2,133 receiving yards on 133 receptions and 27 touchdowns in his career, all of which are school records. He also averaged 37.2 yards per punt during his career and had 16 career interceptions. He was a 9-man all-state player his senior year.
As a senior, he caught 64 passes for 1,027 yards and 13 touchdowns and averaged 19.4
He has good speed for a small-town, 9-man player and had a knack for making some sick catches last season.
Mosbrucker follows in the footsteps of two other former Wildfire standouts, Tyler Greff and Clint Grosz. Both had standout careers for DSU, statistically ranking among the top 10 receivers in school history.
DSU coaches see Mosbrucker as a player who will likely redshirt his first year, but then be able to step in and contribute as second-year freshman.
Receiver has been one of the Blue Hawks’ strongest positions the past couple years. Next year, they return senior Tanner Leak, junior Jimmy Smith and sophomore J.T. Keith. Waiting in the wings is heralded 6-foot-3, 200-pound redshirt freshman Wyatt Mirach, who was one of the most-talked about newcomers.
