Washington put out the following statistics at La Joya High School.
PPG= 12.4, BPG=4.9, RPG=9.4, SPG=1.4, 223 points
He had to take last year off from basketball as he had had to rehab an ankle that had a tendinitis and now is 100% physically. Washington says he brings an unselfish and positive attitude to the team and knows that he has to improve in getting stronger in the weight room, improve his ball handling, work on outside shooting and learn the skills(footwork) around the basket.
