Demond Washington named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week

Demond Washington's record-setting day was honored by the SEC. Washington was named the conference's Special Teams Player of the Week after breaking Auburn's single-game kickoff return yardage record against Georgia.

Washington, a junior from Tallassee, Ala., who transferred from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College this summer, had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against the Bulldogs. It was the sixth-longest in school history.

He finished with 202 kickoff return yards, breaking the previous mark set by Tristan Davis against Arkansas last year. His 202 kick return yards and 229 total return yards were both tied for fourth most in SEC single-game history.

We have been wondering why Demond has not been running punts and kickoffs back. I would like to see him in the offense in the wildcat position. He ran the same thing in high school.
