First-team All-American (1942)

Spencer Dumaresq Moseley (October 21, 1919 - May 23, 1991) was an American football player. He played college football for the Yale Bulldogs football team and was selected by both the United Press and the Newspaper Enterprise Association as an All-American center on the 1942 Yale team.[1] Moseley was captain of the team and also won All-East honors. He was ranked as one of the top 20 players in Yale football history by a committee formed in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Harvard-Yale game. He broke his jaw in his second season but played every game wearing a specially designed harness. He graduated with honors from Yale in 1943.

He later joined REA Express, formerly Railway Express Agency, in 1968 and became its chief executive officer until he retired in the mid-1980s. He died in 1991 at age 71.[2]

His father, the late George Moseley, was an All-American end at Yale, class of 1917.
