Maurice Washington had more than 150 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns to lead Team Highlight to a 23-21 victory over Team Spotlight in the Under Armour All-America Game at Camping World Stadium on Thursday night.
Washington, from Cedar Hill, Texas, was one of the few undeclared prospects in the game and is currently considering Nebraska and Tennessee but says he’s open to new schools. He had 69 yards rushing, 27 yards receiving and a 63-yard kick return to earn MVP honors.
Washington rushed for a 20-yard touchdown in the first quarter to give Highlight a 6-0 lead. Later in the first, he hauled in a 27-yard pass from quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, from Las Vegas, to give Highlight a 13-0 lead that they took into halftime. His third touchdown, a 2-yard run, was set up by the long kick return to open the second half and gave Highlight a 20-0 lead.
