Leon Washington is getting the front-page photos, the mentions on SportsCenter and the trending topic mentions on Twitter for his two kickoff returns for touchdowns in Sunday’s game.
But 10 other players helped make the plays happen.
The kickoff return team, which paved the way for 253 total return yards on Sunday, included Dexter Davis, Michael Robinson, Roy Lewis, Kam Chancellor, Cameron Morrah, Will Herring, Matt McCoy, Jordan Babineaux, Mike Gibson, Kentwan Balmer and, of course, Washington, who gave credit to his 10 teammates on the plays in the same fashion as special teams coordinator Brian Schneider.
“Everyone has a function on big plays like that,” Schneider said today. “It’s a total team effort. Eleven guys create that, and Leon finishes it.”
