PULLMAN, Wash. - Shawn McWashington is no stranger to Cougar fans, having played on one of the greatest teams in school history. McWashington was a four-year letterwinner at wide receiver for the Cougars from 1994-97. The Seattle native caught 67 passes for 998 yards and four touchdowns and was a member of WSU's "Fab Five" that earned a trip to the 1998 Rose Bowl.
McWashington's best season came in 1997, earning All-Pacific-10 Conference honorable mention honors after making 33 catches for 597 yards and three touchdowns. He later signed a free agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs and also was with the San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers, Edmonton and British Columbia of the CFL and Amsterdam of NFL Europe.
Following his football career, McWashington completed his master's degree in education at WSU and served as Tulane's director of student-athlete academic services and later as the director of student-athlete academic center at Florida International before moving back to Seattle where he currently works as a national brokerage producer.
McWashington recently joined the Cougar football radio broadcast team and will be in the booth with Bob Robertson and Bud Nameck for the upcoming 2012 season, which begins Thursday at BYU. Earlier this summer wsucougars.com caught up with McWashington and you can see that interview below.
