Washington is a candidate for The Paul Hornung Award, an award created by the Louisville Sports Commission and designed to recognize versatile, high-level performers in major college football and help preserve the legacy of one of Kentucky's best known athletes.  You can read more about the Paul Hornung Award here.

The honors resulted from the performance of each player in the victory over Ole Miss.

Congratulations to these Tigers for a job well done and positions well-played!
