TOPEKA (KSNT) – The Washburn football team has won two games in a row and improved to (5-2) on the season. Now the Ichabods travel to Central Missouri (5-2) this Saturday for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff against the Mules.
In last week’s 30-24 win against Fort Hays State, Washburn found the endzone in many different ways. First, they faked a field goal and ran in for a touchdown. Then the defense forced a fumble that resulted in another score. The offense helped Washburn jump on top 20-0 with a long touchdown pass. And then special teams joined the party with an 83-yard punt return for a touchdown.
“I just watch Von miller tape and when the quarterback is waiting there, I just try to go for the ball first,” said defensive end Akhmad Abdul-Razzaq.
“He probably has what coaches call a motor more than most kids,” said head coach Craig Schurig on Razzaq. “And he really seems to empty himself on the field. In other words he pushes himself to the limit. He is a high motor player that plays the game the way it’s supposed to be played.”
“He’s what you call a problem on the football field,” said wide receiver Bryce Chaivs. “He’s fast, athletic, and has a motor. I don’t see it stopping anytime soon.”
