Kevin Moses Died Just Months After Winning His Team State Championship
Kevin Moses guided his basketball team, Bloomfield, to a state championship victory last March. His boys beat Granby by 58-54 in the Div. IV state championship game at Mohegan Sun. This was Bloomfield’s first boys’ basketball title since 2008.
Moses was also an assistant for the Bloomfield football team. Many of the boys from the basketball team were also a part of the football side that lost to Cromwell in the Class S state championship game last December.

“They came in, they were hungry,” said Moses said after the championship game.
“That loss to Cromwell in football really energized them and turned them on. They wanted to come into basketball and win the [championship].”
