Aaron Walton-Moss was a significant factor on campus. He was Divison III back-to-back national player of the year on the men’s basketball team.

Walton-Moss began talking to different agents after their 2015 CSAC champion- ship loss ended his college basketball career.

That is when he knew he wanted to play overseas. Moss had to find a way to take care of his family and he knew his true passion was playing basketball.

Walton-Moss was an all-around great player and contributed greatly to the team, which showed in his statistics. His time on campus was phenomenal on and off the court. Whenever one saw him he was always smiling or cracking a joke.

There was never a dull moment.

Some people may have seen Walton- Moss screaming at the refs while in the game or keeping his team uplifted from the bench. Whatever the situation was, he was never quiet.

Realizing that his time as a Divison III player was winding down, he knew he did not just want to stop there. His talent would not let him.

Currently, Walton-Moss has landed himself a spot overseas playing basketball professionally in Argentina for club team Atletico Argentino Junin.

“I don’t know where I am headed, but I won’t stop here,” Walton-Moss said.

Walton-Moss’s previous teammates had so much to say about his amazing outcome.

“I feel like Aaron going overseas is like a real statement that anyone can play anywhere no matter if it’s Division I, Division II or Division III. I’m happy for him he’s like my big brother,” Deryl Bagwell, junior communications major, said. “He’s always been tough on me setting different examples.”

“Despite everything he has been through in his life from having a child at a young age, to not being in school for two years, he has never made an excuse and he always handled his responsibilities as a man,” Vincent Walls, long-time teammate and friend, said.

“Playing with Aaron was easy, but challenging at the same time. He is a one of kind player. He played with toughness every game and made everyone around him better,” Aaron Henry, junior communications major, said. “I knew right away when I played with him that he would be playing pro somewhere after his senior year. I feel honored to have  with him and learn new things.”

“I wish him the best of luck starting his professional career in Argentina,” Henry said.

“Keep working hard and keep your mind focused on accomplishing your goals. If he does that he will have a long successful career that will help him start a better life for himself and his daughter,” Timothy McDonald, men’s head coach, said.
