Getting to know you: Derrick Washington
My biggest strength is: "Probably my strength and field vision, I can see the defenders coming before I make my moves.
The player would I would compare myself to is: "Probably Barry Sanders, I'm not as fast as him, but I think my moves are up there with his."
My favorite musician is: "[Rapper] Lil' Wayne. I just like his style."
My favorite movie is: "I don't know right now. I like comedies and scary movies. I really like scary movies."
My favorite food is: "I like pork chops."
The best player I've played with is: "Probably [my former teammate and MU standout] Chase Coffman."
One thing I need to improve is: "Probably getting int the weight room more. I lift, but I don't lift as long as I should."
My worst habit is: "Nothing really. I procrastinate a lot."
The Mizzou player I'm most looking forward to teaming with is: :Probably Chase Daniel. I talked to him on my official. He's really competitive and I'm really competitive too."

Other sports I play are: "I play basketball and run track. I had 35 [points]" in a recent layoff loss.
