Kelton Washington wrapped up his prep career with an impressive performance he won't soon forget.
The senior running back registered 197 yards and five touchdowns on just 15 carries last Friday night, helping West Point beat Curry 69-20 en route to a 6-4 finish to the 2021 campaign.
Washington, who eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark for a second straight season, picked up touchdown scampers of 8, 13, 7, 2 and 68 yards, as the Warriors set a school record for points scored in a game.
He is The Times' Athlete of the Week.
Washington, however, wasn't the only West Point player to thrive against the Yellow Jackets.
Suyeta Drowning Bear (126 return yards, 32 rushing yards, seven tackles, pick-six); Brian Cornelius (46 rushing yards, TD, four tackles); Jacob Simpson (five tackles — three for loss); Cade Simmons (three catches, 59 yards, TD); Aiden Dujoud (six tackles — three for loss, sack); Noah Laney (64 rushing yards, TD, four tackles, sack); and JD Cochran (nine tackles — two for loss) all had contributions for the Warriors in the season finale as well.
Athlete of the Week, which is sponsored by Mitch Smith Chevrolet, is open to all local athletes.
