Bio: Perhaps the most disruptive player on WSU's defense, when Hercules Mata'afa isn't beating his teammates in wrestling competitions he is making life difficult for opponents. He was named the Outstanding Lineman of the Sun Bowl win in 2014 as a redshirt freshman by forcing Miami to devote two or more defensive linemen to him at all times, and in 2016 was named Second Team All-Conference by the Pac-12 coaches.
