Appalachian State University wide receiver Tony Washington (High Point, N.C./T.W. Andrews) added to his list of accolades for achievement on and off the field on Thursday when he was named first-team
Capital One Academic All-District.
Washington represents Appalachian State in NCAA Division I District 3, which includes all Division I programs (FBS and FCS) in North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. By earning first-team All-District recognition for the second-straight year, he will automatically appear on the Capital One Academic All-America ballot. The All-America teams will be announced later this month.
Majoring in architectural design, Washington carries a 3.80 cumulative grade point average. He was named Appalachian State’s Most Outstanding Architectural Design Student in 2012-13 and was the winner of the architectural design department’s portfolio competition last semester. Last week, the National Football Foundation selected Washington as one of 16 National Scholar-Athlete award winners, which includes an $18,000 scholarship for postgraduate studies.
On the field, Washington ranks third in the Southern Conference this season in both and receptions (46) and receiving yards (637). He ranks 10th in school history with 121 career receptions, fifth with a 23.5-yard career average on kickoff returns and is the school’s all-time leader with 1,059 career kick-return yards.
Washington and the Mountaineers face Georgia on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. The game will be televised on WSB-TV in greater Atlanta and nationwide on ESPN GamePlan and ESPN3.
