Texas Tech running back DeAndre Washington has seen a little bit of everything over his career in Lubbock.
A torn ACL, multiple coaching changes, big wins, tough losing streaks and the personal milestone of becoming the first Red Raider to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season since the Air Raid came to town back in 2000, are just some of the experiences which have made him a team leader, even among fellow seniors.
Washington also appears on course for a monster senior season. With the opener just a handful of days away, everything is on the line; his legacy as a Red Raider, a shot at a professional career and the culmination of all his hard work before and since signing with Tech back in 2011.
"I think we have the opportunity for a really special year," Washington said. "I think with the squad we got, just the adversity we've been through, the character this team has I think we have the opportunity to shock the world and have a special year."
