Former Dolphin Quentin Moses among three killed in Georgia house fire

By Jesse Reed

A house fire in Monroe, Georgia claimed the life of former Miami Dolphins defensive end Quentin Moses, along with a woman and her daughter early Sunday morning.

Ellen Eldridge of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution provided these details:

“Andria Godard, 31, and her 10-year-old daughter Jasmine Godard were found dead inside the home. Quentin Omario Moses, 33, was found unconscious and moved outside the house, but was pronounced dead at Clearview Medical Center.

Fire Chief Keith Glass told reporters that “the house was fully engulfed with flames when firefighters responded and the roof collapsed as they battled to bring the fire under control.”

Moses played four years in the NFL for the Dolphins, appearing in 44 games and starting two. He was originally a third-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders out of the University of Georgia.

Following his playing career, Moses became an assistant coach at Reinhardt University.
