Recently NFL star Randy Moss was traded from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings after expressing dissatisfaction with the Pats.
So how will things end up working out for Moss after his extraordinary move? It’s almost impossible to know how he’ll adjust, but if he takes his cue from his daughter, Vikings fans may soon be happy.
Rising high school junior Sydney Moss is already one of the best female basketball players in the country, with scholarship offers from many of the top college basketball programs around the country. But two years ago, Moss was entering her third school in just four years and had an attitude that reportedly was a “concern.” (She quit her high school team as a freshman and transferred.)
All indications are that Sydney has shown resiliency in living with a famous father, her own extraordinary athletic ability and dealing with a high school social environment that can often be complex and difficult.
Last March Sydney said during the Kentucky state basketball tournament, “People expect a lot because of my last name. When I am with him (father Randy), it’s crazy out in public with people screaming and stuff. It’s kind of like it was in here, so I am just used to it.”
Yes, comparing the two in the context of athletics is a little absurd, but at the very least it appears that Sydney settling into high school life may be one less thing for father Randy to worry about as he makes his only team transition.
