Kirtland (WOIO) - Kirtland standout running back/defensive back Damon Washington gave an oral commitment to attend Miami (Ohio).
Washington ran for 1,385 yards and 28 touchdowns in ten regular season games in 2012 and was named the Division V Co-Offensive Player of the Year the past two seasons. He also recorded 21 tackles with an interception on defense this season.
While most schools recruited him to play defense, Washington hopes to play offense with the Redhawks.
Washington was also recruited by several Mid-American Conference schools, including Ohio and Toledo.
Kirtland lost 10-9 in the Division V state championship game earlier this month, but won the state championship in 2011.
