Washington's rushing attack suffered a huge blow when star running back Shai McKenzie went down with a season-ending knee injury the third game of the 2013 season. However, underclassmen running backs Malik Wells and Jordon West stepped up and helped the Little Prexies place second in the Interstate Conference.
Wells, a senior, and West, a junior, are back and make Washington perhaps the favorite to win the conference title. Wells rushed for 605 yards and nine touchdowns, while West ran for 480 yards and nine touchdowns.
"They made the most of the opportunity," said coach Mike Bosnic, who added he has more than 60 players on the roster. "Right now, both guys have looked very good and very sharp."
