CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Having struggled at wide receiver his entire college career, Obum Gwacham is switching to defensive end for his senior year at Oregon State.
He jokes that maybe his biggest catch is ahead of him - in the form of an interception.
Defensive line coach Joe Seumalo planted the idea of coming over to the defense last season, Gwacham said. Following Oregon State's victory over Boise State in the Hawaii Bowl, he started seriously considering the possibility for his last year.
Gwacham always had an uneven career at receiver. Over three seasons plagued by injury and inconsistency, he'd had just 11 catches for 65 yards and a touchdown, although he also played on special teams.
A quick learner, Gwacham is making strides with the defense, in a group competing for the spot opposite DE Dylan Wynn.
