He is an offensive tackle for the Seattle Seahawks who was drafted as the 6th overall pick in 2010. He played college football for Oklahoma State University. While there, he was twice recognized as an All-American.

Raised in a single-parent household, he never met his father. However, he learned at an early age to focus on God and allow God's peace to rule his life. He said of his faith, "My father passed when I was a very young boy. I have never had my father in my life, but my heavenly Father has always been present. The Lord has placed plenty of outstanding mentors in my life to help facilitate my walk. I'm blessed enough to have God fearing men of great valor and integrity to help me. My faith is important to me because I realize that I'm not in this world by accident. My faith speaks to my heart. It gives me confidence, strength, and renews me each day. Though I don't physically see my faith, I see it manifested through my life, with my platform, off and on the field as well as my personal life. My faith is my rock!"

His name is Russell Okung.
