Former Dolphin Quentin Moses dies in a house fire

Investigators are trying to determine what caused a fatal fire that ripped through a Walton County home early Sunday morning, killing a 10 year-old girl and two adults.

Officials from the Monroe Fire Department say a home on Shamrock Drive was completely engulfed by flames when they arrived at 6:05 am.

Moses was initially found unconscious inside the house but was still alive upon being moved outside of the house.

It is also worth noting that 31-year-old Andria Goddard and her 10-year-old daughter were also killed in the aforementioned fire.

Moses played at Georgia from 2003-06. He was a first-team All-SEC defensive end on Georgia's SEC championship team in 2005.

Moses played four years in the National Football League for the Dolphins, appearing in 44 games and starting two. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims' families".

Georgia football coach Kirby Smart offered his condolences upon hearing the news: "Very saddened to learn of the tragic death this morning of Quentin Moses".

Moses was a native Athenian and attended high school at Cedar Shoals.

He was originally a third-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders out of the University of Georgia. He was working as the defensive line coach at Reinhardt University.
