Best game ever: Leon Washington

Continuing our series on the best games members of the Tennessee Titans have ever played ...

Leon Washington, return man

First game of 2000 high school season

Andrew Jackson (Jacksonville, Fla.) vs. Fletcher (Neptune Beach, Fla.)

Jacksonville, Fla.

Washington: Scored rushing, receiving, punt return and interception return touchdowns.

“I just love high school so much. My best high school game, we played against Fletcher my junior year. I had a rushing touchdown, I had a punt return, I had an interception and I had a receiving touchdown all in one game. That was my best game. Against one of the best teams in the state. It was awesome. There was a big-time recruit named Ciatrick Fason, he was going to Florida, everybody in the town knew about. I didn’t really play high school football until my junior year. Nobody really knew about me. So everybody came out that game to watch and they ended up seeing Leon Washington, No. 3, going a whole bunch of different ways. It was a great way to put myself on the map. And I ended up finishing my career Mr. Football in the state of Florida. That kind of propelled me to the next level. I’ve got highlight tapes from high school. I can go on and on about high school. In the NFL, it would have to be a Seahawks game against the San Diego Chargers where I returned two punts returns in one game for a touchdown. The year we went 7-9 and went to the playoffs.”
