Randy Moss' Son, Thad Moss, Is Dominating Rhode Island High School Football

If the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, it's best to have a tree that procured seven Pro Bowl appearances during his NFL career.

Yahoo! Sports' Cameron Smith brings us a reminder that things are going very well for Thad Moss when it comes to high school football.

The sophomore at Lincoln (R.I.) High is the son of former NFL star receiver Randy Moss, and he is doing pretty much everything on the gridiron at the moment.

Smith notes a couple of interesting tidbits about this budding football star.

First, Moss isn't exactly keen on staying in one place for too long. As a sophomore, he is already at his third school, splitting time between Boone County High (Florence, Ky.) and St. Albans School (Charleston, W.Va.) during his freshman year.

Apparently, Moss wanted to showcase his skills on the basketball court when he entered high school, so he left for St. Albans to that end.

If the above video is any indication, officials at Lincoln High better cross their fingers that the young man stays put for the rest of his prep career.

Fortunately for one lucky college football coach out there, it seems his latest stop has him concentrating on his football endeavors.

Not that he is taking it easy, because Smith also notes Moss plays on both sides of the ball. The 6'4", 240-pound phenom starts at defensive end and tight end, and you can see him in both roles above.

If that weren't enough, MaxPreps reports he has also spent a little time at quarterback.

Now it's a little hard to appreciate his speed in such a short video, but you can certainly see how he towers over the other players, ripping through the line to blast the ball loose in the first play.

Essentially, things are going about as well as you would expect for the son of a former NFL superstar.
