Selma High guard headed to Chattahoochee Valley CC

Selma High guard Jarvis Moss will extend his basketball career outside Dallas County.

Moss has verbally committed to play at  Chattahoochee Valley Community College. He will officially sign with the Pirates on Monday.

The 6-foot-1 Moss said the atmosphere at CVCC stood out.

“The family atmosphere there the coaching staff just made me feel wanted and I know that if I attend there they will get me better and ready for the next level,” Moss said.

At CVCC, Moss will play with Dallas County guard Darrius Ellis. Moss and Ellis were The Selma Times-Journal co-basketball players of the year.

“My boy Dee’s going there to that’s a plus,” Ellis joked.

Moss averaged 20 points, and four assists earning third-team Class 5A All-State honors.

Moss also made the South squad in the AHSAA All-Star basketball game last summer, but  it was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At Selma High, Moss was known for his game-winning shots in the closing seconds.

Moss  scored 17 third quarter points in a victory over Central-Tuscaloosa in the tournament semifinals. His layup as time expired lifted the Saints past Sipsey Valley to win the Area 7, 5A championship.

Selma High coach Daron Rembert said Moss’ playmaking skills made him a standout.

“Jarvis is a special talent in regards to his gifts on the basketball court,” Saints coach Darron Rembert said. “He is a hard worker who loves the game. He is still growing as a player and has the potential to play at the next level. His work ethic will allow him to transition enhance his natural ability to shoot and handle the basketball. He is willing to take the shot with the game on the line, not afraid of the moment.”
