Washington gives boost to Georgia Tech's attack

ATLANTA (AP) - Tevin Washington is aiming for Joe Hamilton's passing standards at Georgia Tech.

That should be no surprise.

There has been much passing futility at Georgia Tech since Hamilton completed his career in 1999 as the Heisman Trophy runner-up.

Washington is in position to end the school's streak of nine straight years where the starting quarterback had more interceptions than touchdown passes or failed to complete 50 percent of his attempts.

In some years, A.J. Suggs, Reggie Ball, Taylor Bennett and Joshua Nesbitt, a strong runner, fell below both modest break-even measurements for quarterbacks.

Washington has 10 TD passes and one interception as a surprise in his first full season starting for No. 13 Georgia Tech, which will try for its sixth straight win when it plays Maryland on Saturday.
