Sydney Moss has unintentionally made an effective case that athletic prowess is genetic opposed to being strictly formulated through nepotism.
The daughter of ex-NFL All-Pro wide receiver Randy Moss has broken the Division III Women’s Basketball record by dropping 63 points in one game.
The sophomore can cover every position on the floor and she actually bested the Division I tally of 61 points set in 1987.

Sydney Moss has set the women’s Division III scoring record with 63 points for Thomas More College in a semifinal victory at the Presidents’ Athletic Conference tournament.
The daughter of former NFL star Randy Moss broke Ann Gilbert’s mark of 61 points Friday night when she made two free throws with 18 seconds remaining in the Saints’ 106-88 win over Waynesburg in Crestview Hills, Ky. Thomas More improved to 27-0 and advanced to Saturday’s championship game against Washington & Jefferson College.
Gilbert scored 61 points for Oberlin College against Allegheny College on Feb. 6, 1991.
Sydney Moss, a 5-foot-10 sophomore, transferred from Florida after her freshman season. Her father was an All-Pro wide receiver with the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots during an NFL career that lasted from 1998-2012.
Moss doesn’t play with a team full of scrubs, either. On February 25, five of her teammates reached double-figures in scoring as they routed their opponent by a score of 127-34.
No one should be surprised when Randy Moss’ daughter is suited up in the WNBA in a few years.
