Bobby Washington

Miami Killian

In 2003, Miami Killian High School running back Bobby Washington became the all time career leading rusher in Miami-Dade County history with 5,695 yards, breaking the old record held by Frank Gore of Coral Gables. Washington finished his high school career at the Orange Bowl during a loss to Miami Carol City High School in a state semifinal playoff game. He began his prep career at Archbishop Carroll High School, where he started as a 9th grader. Washington then transferred to Killian and became a 3-time All Dade County selection. He earned Parade All American honors as a senior. 

Rated the nation's second best running back recruit behind Adrian Peterson, Washington signed his letter of intent with the University of Miami. Due to complications with his college entrance test scores, he was refused admission to UM. . Washington ultimately enrolled at North Carolina State to play for former Florida State assistant Chuck Amato. NC State's roster at the time was filled with former Killian players, including NFL linebacker Stephen Tulloch. However, Washington struggled to win the starting job at NC State. He transferred to Eastern Kentucky, where he surpassed 1,500 yards rushing as a senior. Washington was undrafted by the NFL. He had tryouts with the Dolphins, Eagles and Rams, but never made an NFL roster.

I just completed the history for Killian yesterday. They used to have some big time games with Southridge. 

from 1994-1996 Killian was 9-0 all 3 years heading into the Southridge game. The 96 game, 20,000 packed the Orange Bowl to watch both undefeated squads duke it in a 21-20 slugfest that went Killian’s way. 

in 94 and 95 Southridge won by one score each time. Both those games had minimum 8,000.
