UNC recruit Washington is a talented back

Damien Washington, A.L. Brown High School

Damien Washington, A.L. Brown High School

On a night that Hurricane Irene was bearing down on North Carolina and sent many residents heading for higher ground, future UNC football recruit Damien Washington from A.L. Brown High School in Kannapolis hit the South Rowan Raiders with the same ferocity and left them to wonder what hit them.

The rivalry between Brown and South is one of the older ones in the state and dates back fifty-years. It is also one of the most lop-sided rivalries and it got worse on Friday on the heels of a future Tar Heel. Washington ripped the Raiders and was barley even touched by defenders.

The 170-pound speedster came on the recruiting scene late but once college scouts saw the pure speed he possesses, it didn't take long for the offers to come rolling in. In fact he was the first verbal commit for UNC head coach Everett Withers.

The Raiders wisely pooch kicked the opening kickoff to keep the ball out of his hands but two plays later Washington took a pitch to the outside and it appeared that he was shot out of a cannon. Washington raced 62 yards on that first carry and wasn't even touched.

Before the first half ended Washington has amassed 197 rushing yards on four carries and reeled in an 80-yard reception and scored a total of four touchdowns. With the game under control, he was given the second half off.

The amazing night was one of the best individual performances in the state and has put a bright spotlight on him and gained a lot of media attention. The game was far out of reach by the half and Kannapolis won the game 63-12.
