Hayford on Washington: “We are excited
that Sir will be able to join our team this season. He is an
athletic wing player who can shoot and drive. We will also look to
him to be lock-down defender.”
HS: Graduated from Clark HS in 2013. As a senior, Washington led Clark to a 29-3 record overall and 10-0 mark in the I-A Southern Sunset League standings. He was the MVP of the league as he helped the school go on a 22-game winning streak. The Chargers lost 59-57 to Desert Pines in the championship game of the NIAA Division I-A Tournament after beating Elko 45-40 in the semifinals. Washington averaged 14.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game, while making 43 percent of his shots from the floor (25-of-101 3-pointers) and 59 percent of his free throws. He scored 20 points or more in five games, including a season-high 28 in a loss to Centennnial (12/8/12) when he made 11-of-18 shots from the floor with four treys. He had three double-figure rebounding performances with a season-high of 11, and he had season highs of five assists and four steals in four games each.

He helped the Chargers finish 23-5 and place second in the Southwest League behind eventual State 4A Champion Bishop Gorman. Clark ended the season with a 70-64 loss to Palo Verde in the Nevada Boys State Basketball Playoffs (4A Sunset Region).

They helped the Chargers reach the Sunset Region playoffs for the first time since 2006, improving by 15 wins in the 2012-13 season from an 8-14 finish the year before.
