Getting to know...RG David Moosman
With four of last year's five starting offensive lineman having left the program after last season, some fans are wondering about the guys who will be taking their place. Slotted in to start at Right Guard (RG) this Saturday is #60 David Moosman (Sr./Jr.). Moosman turns 22 next week as his birthday is on September 2nd. He was born in 1986 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Even more interesting is the fact that Moosman is an accomplished chess player. He played on a national chess champion club team in elementary school. Moosman, who has seen action as a back-up in 7 games over the last two seasons, will be making the first start of his career this Saturday. Hopefully, Moosman will stay one move ahead of the Utah Utes' defensive linemen this Saturday just like he does when he is playing chess. Go Blue!
