Marty is the son of Robert and Julie Moesta. He has two younger sisters, Mary (16) and Susie (12) and one younger brother, Henry (14).
Marty started playing football at age nine for two years, stopped, and picked it up again his freshman year of high school. In high school, Marty started on both sides of the ball all four years, and was a two-time varsity letter recipient. On defense, Marty played outside linebacker, defensive end, and even some safety. On offense Marty played tight end and wide receiver. In addition, Marty played a big role in his football team’s 2010 Division 2 State Playoff Semifinal appearance, the farthest his school had ever made it. Marty was awarded the Scholar Athlete Award both varsity years, as well as MAC Blue Second Team his junior year. Sidelined by a foot injury his senior year, Marty missed almost all of his senior season, but as captain of his team Marty stuck with them as well as his rehabilitation and made it back on the field in a limited role in his team’s final game against Martin Luther King.
Aside from football, Marty is a well-rounded athlete, playing both hockey and basketball in his high school career. Marty was a starter in hockey in his junior and senior years and helped lead his hockey team to the Division 2 State Finals this past season.
Marty thanked his parents and especially his grandparents for supporting him in every sport he played. “I am so grateful that I was given this opportunity to play with some of the best high school players in the state, despite my lack of a senior season,” Marty added. Marty also thanked Michael Fox at Next Level Health and Fitness and Dr. Chris Zingas at St. Clair Orthopedic for “sacrificing so much of their time to help me achieve a successful rehabilitation”. Furthermore, Marty thanked his football team for “all the great memories and the whole Grosse Pointe community for being such ‘dedicated fans’.” Finally, Marty thanked his “Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all of His blessings and good fortune.”
