There’s no date on this photo but you can tell this shot was taken some time ago.

Just look at legendary Redskins kicker Mark Moseley’s jeans.

This must have been a special moment for “Grandma,” however, and it appears she didn’t pull a “Lucy” on one of the last straight-on style kickers.

Moseley played over 12 years with the Redskins, and was part of the Super Bowl XVII victory against the Dolphins during the 1982-83 season in which he won the MVP Award. To this day he is the only kicker to take home such honors.

That year, a strike-shortened nine-game season, Moseley hit 20 of 21 field goal attempts, leading the league with a 95.2 field goal percentage. The next year he also led the league in total points, tallying 161 with 33 field goals made.

“I realize now how fortunate I was,” Moseley told ESPN last year. “People keep asking to see the trophy but I don’t have anything. They gave you nothing back then. All I got was the front page of the Washington Post — I have it on a wall and I framed it. That’s all I have.”

Moseley is now a director of franchise development with the Five Guys burgers chain and has made the transition from football into business seamlessly.

And, if you were wondering, the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics is still a thing. It takes place every September and, like this photo suggests, you never who might show up.
