Jay Washington is one of the top safeties in Louisiana for 2013 and here is a look at the St. Paul's…
Post-Game Reaction: St. Paul's Jay Washington
"We were real upset that people were picking up to lose this game," said Jay Washington. "We knew Karr was good, but we also knew that we're good enough to beat them. We wanted everyone to know that you can't sleep on us." Washington, the leading returning tackler for St. Paul's (64 stops in 2010), intercepted a Karr pass in the waning minutes of the second quarter that set up a field goal by kicker Trent Domingue. The Wolves held a comfortable 24-0 advantage at the half. "Karr threw a slant on that play to (tight end) Standish Dobard," said Washington. "I was going for the big hit, but the ball slipped off Dobard's fingertips and I was able to grab it. I had a lot of tackles tonight and could have had another interception, but I didn't have my hands in the right place. "We're real excited about this win. We're ready for next Friday (week two matchup vs Acadiana)." St. Paul's will try to avenge its only loss of 2010 when the defending Class 5A state champ Acadiana Rams meet the Wolves in the Superdome. That contest is part of a doubleheader (other tilt features John Curtis Christian vs. Westgate). "We'll see if we're really the real deal against Acadiana," said Washington. "That will let us know if we have a good chance of going to the Dome (in December for the state title)." Washington also sang the praises of teammates Ed Duplessis (junior LB) and Marcus Gaines (sophomore athlete). "Ed is definitely real good," said Washington. "People say he's like Otha Peters (Covington LB and Tennessee commit), but to me he's even better. He's really long and strong and runs a 4.5. Marcus (scored two TDs tonight) is small but is all muscle." The Wolves have a motto for the 2011 campaign. "Wolf Gang or Die Hunting," said Washington.
