Jay Washington updates season, recruitment
St. Paul's extended its winning steak over the Covington Lions with a hard-fought win that evened the Wolves' record at 2-2. "There was a huge crowd for both teams," St. Paul's secondary standout Jay Washington said. "It was a real battle. Covington's strength is offense. "The Covington offense is alright. They've switched things since last year and were running the I-formation against us with a lot of powers that were giving us trouble between the tackles, but we made the right adjustments in the second half." St. Paul's lost to two nationally-ranked teams -- John Curtis Christian (reached No. 3 last week) and Tallahassee Lincoln (No. 20) -- to open the season. "We've moving forward with Mandeville (2011 5A semifinalist)," Washington said of this week's road district game. "I feel like I'm playing pretty well. "A lot of schools are calling and keeping in touch. The ULM coaches have been showing a lot of interest and have a great program. I talk with Coach (Tim) Rebowe from the Cajuns. UL says they are looking for a safety." Washington has always stepped up in a major way in big games, and he did that again this year in his team's two losses. The senior picked off a pass in each game and gobbled up real estate following the interception with returns of 18 (vs. Curtis) and 25 yards (Lincoln). St. Paul's was perfect last year entering the 5A playoffs with the No. 1 seed, only to get upset by No. 32 Central.
