Biographical Information: Junior linebacker from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Was ranked as the number 4 recruit in Hawaii and the number 49 running back nationally by Rivals.com as a senior.

Fun Fact from Official Team Bio: Won the “Construction Crew” weightlifting award his freshman season at the team’s postseason banquet

Why I love the name: He’s named after a book of the Bible, and not one of the books named after a person with a regular name, like Matthew or Mark or Ecclesiastes. “Wooching” is also a funny name to holler at the top of your lungs, although my coworkers don’t seem to enjoy it nearly as much as I do. If I ever get a chance to attend a Washington game, I can promise you my war cry will certainly be “WOOOOOOOOOOCHIIIIIING!” I’ll be rooting for you, Psalm. Nice eye black, by the way.
