Wash played in all 10 games a year ago, compiling 18 total tackles, a forced fumble and two pass breakups. His best game came against Indiana State, where he had the forced fumble and both pass breakups to go with three tackles. His 2004 season was cut short by injury after he started the first four games. He returned to play in the final game and ended the season with 21 tackles in five games, five tackles for loss, four sacks and a fumble recovery. His best game was his last one, when he had six tackles and three sacks against Illinois State. Wash was one of four true freshmen to earn a varsity letter in 2003 as he played in all 11 games, securing nine tackles, a fumble recovery and a pass breakup.

Background: Wash came to MSU after a stellar career in three sports at Topeka (Kan.) West High where he played basketball and football and competed in track. He was a first team all-state defensive end for the Chargers, who went 10-3 and advanced to the Kansas Class 5-A playoffs in 2002.
