Over the course of his four years with the Colorado Buffaloes, Ryan Moeller only registered one interception. Two games into his professional football career and the strong safety already has two picks. Moeller is among a trio of forever Buffs — WR Nelson Spruce and LB Kenneth Olugbode — playing for the San Diego Fleet, one of eight teams in the upstart Alliance of American Football (AAF).
Moeller had five total tackles and an interception in the Fleet’s season-opening 15-6 loss to the San Antonio Commanders. His interception came late in the 2nd quarter, when he came down with a deflected Logan Woodside pass. Sunday, the Rifle, Colo. native added a second takeaway when he made a sliding interception on a Matt Simms tipped pass in the Fleet’s 24-12 win over the Atlanta Legends.

Through his first two games, Moeller has registered six total tackles and two picks for the Fleet. Olugbode, who led the Buffs with 115 tackles during their Pac-12 South title run in 2016, has recorded two total tackles. Spruce, the Buffaloes all-time leader in receptions (294) and receiving yards (3,347), has also had an impact in the early going for the Fleet. He led the team with four receptions for 58 yards in Sunday’s home opener and added a catch for 11-yards in week one.
