The speedy defensive back became a regular in the secondary as a true freshman and was credited with 13 tackles, including nine against Ole Miss. Moore became the starter at free safety as a sophomore and responded with 26 tackles and his first career interception which came in the Tigers’ win over Louisville. The 1988 season was legendary for Moore. He recorded 76 tackles and seven pass interceptions, including a school record tying three in the Tulane game. For his play, Moore was named to The Sporting News and Associated Press All-American Teams.

A native of Placentia, Calif., Ryan Roskelly came to the Tigers from Fullerton Junior College in the fall of 1994. The multi-talented receiver immediately broke into the line-up as a flanker and kick returner. He caught 44 passes for 602 yards and three touchdowns that first season and returned 40 punts for 468 yards and one score. He finished the season as the NCAA’s ninth ranked punt returner and his 10 returns for 194 yards against Tulsa were the most by any player in the nation that season. Roskelly will long be remembered for his touchdown catch that defeated Ole Miss in Oxford in 1994. During the 1995 campaign, Roskelly was the team’s leading pass catcher with 34 receptions for 361 yards and registered 30 punt returns for 252 yards.

5 More Days Until Kickoff.

For many years, the University of Memphis has become known as “Defensive Back U” and Idrees Bashir is one of the reasons that the Tigers have gained such a reputation. A native of Decatur, Georgia, Bashir came to Memphis in the fall of 1998. He became a starter as a freshman and earned a spot on the C-USA All-Freshman Team after posting 51 tackles. Working as both a strong and free safety during his career, Bashir set the Memphis record for the longest interception return with a 100 yard return in the Tigers win over Army in 2000. He was a Conference USA first team selection at free safety in 2000, and after recording 187 career tackles, opted to forgo his senior season to enter the NFL Draft. He played six seasons for the Colts, Panthers and Lions before retiring in 2008.
