While Randy Moss was a star player for many years in the NFL, his daughter has chosen the life of an athlete as well, and scored a record number of points in a game last night.
Sydney Moss scored 63 points in an epic performance for Thomas More College. She set the NCAA Division III record for single-game scoring with her performance, beating the previous record of 61 points, which was held by Ann Gilbert.
The record of 61 points was set by Gilbert when she was a player for Oberlin College, in a game against Allegheny College, on Feb. 6, 1991.
Randy Moss was a big star in the NFL, and enjoyed a highly successful career, while playing for an extended period of time for both the Minnesota VIkings and the New England Patriots.

Following in her father’s footsteps, Sydney may become a star too. She scored 63 points in the 106-88 win over Waynesburg University, and she is a former prep basketball star from Kentucky. While she is playing in Division III now, she began her college career at the University of Florida, where she played for her freshman season.
Moss is a 5’11 sophomore, and a guard for the small school in Crestview Hills, a suburb southwest of Cincinnati. She averaged 22.6 points and 10.8 rebounds per game in her junior year at Boone County High School.
While Moss broke the record for Division III, the Division 1 record is held by Cindy Brown, who scored 60 points for Long Beach State against San Jose State on Feb. 16, 1987.
Randy Moss’ career in the NFL lasted from 1998 until his recent retirement in 2012, and although she has chosen the path of an athlete, he has had little interaction with his daughter Sydney throughout her life.
