2012 Sun Bowl: What is Tevin Washington's legacy?

US PRESSWIRE

How does Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' quarterback Tevin Washington stack up with prior Georgia Tech quarterbacks?

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' quarterback Tevin Washington enters his final game not concerned about the legacy that he will leave at Georgia Tech, as he is more focused on playing well against the USC Trojans:

"That's not for me to judge," he said after the team's game against Duke. "I just go out and play week-in and week-out. I really don't pay attention to any of the negative stuff anyway."

Statistically, Washington stacks up quite well with past Georgia Tech quarterbacks. He ran for 37 rushing touchdowns in his career, breaking the school and conference record of 35 touchdowns, held by former Yellow Jacket quarterback Joshua Nesbitt.

His career passing efficiency rating is No. 3 in school history (141.8), he ranks No. 5 in total offense (5,442), No. 9 in passing yards (3,263), No. 10 in passing touchdowns (20) and No. 4 in the ACC for career rushing yards by a quarterback (2,170), 17 yards behind former Virginia Tech Hokies' quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Despite these nice numbers, Washington is only 13-15 as a starter with his big win being against Clemson his junior season. The Yellow Jackets have not come close to defeating the Georgia Bulldogs with Washington as quarterback and he is also 0-2 in bowl games.

Despite all of this, head coach Paul Johnson expressed a positive sentiment about Washington's time in the program:

"I think (Washington) is the epitome of perseverance," Johnson said. "I appreciate him. He works hard every day. He's a great kid. I'm glad he's in our program."
