James Washington Might Just Be Rashaun Woods

first_imgThe similarities are eerie. James Washington and Rashaun Woods. They’re both quiet and unassuming. Both love fishing more than anything else it seems like and Washington has a career that closely mirrors Woods’ so far. We will get to the stats in a second, but shout-out to Justin Southwell on the comp.Is James Washington actually Rashaun Woods? ?2️⃣8️⃣?8️⃣2️⃣? https://t.co/ll6iNM4lvM— Southwell (@JustinSouthwell) September 8, 2016And let’s check in on James Washington’s fishing skills in this cool interview with Allison Gappa.You’ve seen James Washington catch plenty of footballs, but did you know he also loves catching fish? #okstate pic.twitter.com/h0hXot3Xz1— Cowboy Football (@CowboyFB) September 8, 2016“It’s something my parents instilled in me growing up,” said Washington recently. “Just being a hard worker and never wanting someone to give you something. Always going out to prove to them you can work for your own. If I can just be myself and never forget where I came from, I think I’ll be pretty good. I don’t see myself as a celebrity. I just see myself as another guy trying to live his dream. That’s really it.”Sounds a lot like somebody who used to run routes for Josh Fields.Now for the statistical comps. Top is obviously Rashaun and bottom is Washington.screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-3-00-48-pmscreen-shot-2016-09-08-at-3-07-22-pmLook at that! Rashaun had 29 receptions his freshman year.Washington had 28. They were within 200 yards of each other after two seasons. Both had 10 TDs in their sophomore years. Washington has some work to do in season three to reach Rashaun’s level of production in his last two years, but so far No. 28 seems a lot like the new No. 82. Gundy even said as much in the preseason.“James falls more into the Rashaun Woods category in my opinion,” said Gundy. “Very quiet, he’s a terrific route runner. He has a burst that is a little more deceptive than what defensive players think. That’s what makes him a good player. All of them are ultra-competitive. And he is more of the Rashaun Woods mold than the other guys.”Pretty cool. And something I’m more than thrilled about over the next two years.
