Shaq Washington: Transition Complete

After catching just three passes in each of the previous two seasons, junior Shaq Washington has taken off this season with a team-high 58 grabs.

The Maple Heights product has been an integral part of the offense under Brendon Kay by catching numerous short passes and extending them into long gains with his running talent.

At Maple Heights, he was a quarterback that led his team to the Division II title game twice, losing to Winton Woods in 2009 and defeating Trotwood Madison in 2010.

He is one of several Bearcats who have made the transition from high school quarterback to another position successfully.
  Of the current roster, tight end Tyler Cogswell was once a quarterback and Jordan Luallen and Munchie Legaux played other positions before transitioning back.

  From years gone by, Chad Plummer and Brent Petrus were both quarterbacks that finished their careers as receivers.

Here's the latest, No. 19 Mr. Washington:
