Washington not packing it in without McKenzie

For those thinking the Washington football team is going to struggle because running back Shai McKenzie is out for the year with a torn ACL, think again.
Having covered quite a few Wash High football games over the past 13 months, I can confidently say that while McKenzie will be missed, the season is not lost.
Far from it.
While no one will be confusing the Prexies’ passing attack with that of South Fayette, Washington has enough athletes to at least address the loss of McKenzie.
Malik Wells (10-151-2TD) should be the primary runner. Jordon West (12-63-2TD) and Kurt Adkins (10-119-1TD) will also get carries. Ditto for Arthur Long (11-55-1TD), a transfer from Ringgold, at fullback.
Washington put in a wishbone look this summer, and I would expect the Prexies to feature that even more going forward.
Plus wide receiver Chase Caldwell, a converted quarterback, and Quorteze Levy are playmakers; the Prexies simply need to find them ways to get the ball, whether it’s on jet sweeps or reverses.
