On the strength of recording the second-longest kickoff return in Appalachian State University history during Saturday’s 38-28 loss to No. 8 Wofford, junior Tony Washington (High Point, N.C./T.W. Andrews) has been named the
Southern Conference’s Special Teams Player of the Week, the league office announced on Monday. Washington gave Appalachian State a 28-24 lead late in the third quarter when he took a Wofford kickoff back 99 yards for a touchdown. Appalachian’s first kickoff return for a touchdown since CoCo Hillary’s 95-yarder at Wofford in 2007 was the second-longest return in school history and the longest since Keith Nash’s school-record 100-yarder at Lenoir-Rhyne in 1968.
