Leon Washington has always had to prove himself despite having some of the best God-Given talent…
Catching up with Leon's High School Coach
What was Leon like back in high school?
"He was so great," Sullivan said. "He did everything for us. He punted, held for extra points, played running back and started on defense as a safety. Leon wasn't a good play but rather a great player. He brought so much to the table. He made the whole team around him better."
What is Leon like today?
"Well, he's the same person as he was back in high school," he said. "My son had a 12-year All-Star game in Tallahassee and he told me to pick him up. Most people his age wouldn't get up that early in the morning. He went over there with me and spoke to the kids about having fun and staying on top of their academics. He's so inspiring. He still interested in the high school program. He helps by talking to the kids."
Where does Sullivan think Washington will get drafted?
"Florida State's offensive line struggled a little last year but scouts have all kind of film on him," he said. " They even have stuff on him making special team plays as a freshman. I think he'll probably be drafted late in the second round. Teams like Seattle, Pittsburgh, Denver and Miami have been real interested. Actually the Dolphins flew up yesterday to work him out because of the whole Ricky Williams situation. I think whoever gets him is getting a special person and player."
