After a terrific senior season where he led the Panthers to their third straight 6A state championship,Wash, a Tennessee Tech signee, has been on his grind again. He has earned a few more high school accolades to add to his already impressive resume. 

Wash was selected to participate in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl at the AT&T stadium in Dallas, Texas. 

“Getting invited to play in the Blue-Grey game, I felt as if all my hard work was starting to pay off,” Wash said. 

The Blue-Grey All-American Bowl has seen many big-time players participate in their annual game. Some of the All-American Bowls notable alumni include Byron Pringle and Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs.  

Another accomplishment during the break was his selection to the 48th annual Kansas Shrine Bowl. 

“At first I didn’t think much of it because I didn’t know how big of a deal it was until people started informing me on the history and meaning of the game, and now I am very excited to play in the game,” Wash said.
