SU’s Washington takes the Positive’s from Cancelled Games
ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) -A Change of plans for the Southern University jaguars as they cancel their first to non-conference games due to COVID-19, leaving senior’s two games short in their final season.
“When I first heard about it, it hurt me a little bit,” senior wide-receiver Jamar Washington said. “I was looking forward to those first two games to kick off the season. This just taught me a lesson that I can’t take anything for granted, and to always give it my all. This is my last year, so I have to make it count,” he added.
The season-opener against Tennessee State at Ford Field in Detroit on September 5, and home-opener against Florida A&M were both affected by the changes. The first regular season game will be held September 19 at Alabama A&M, and the Jags new home-opener will be on September 26 against Jackson State in the annual Pete Richardson Classic.
