Transcript of Kenny Washington
In college at UCLA, he rushed for 1,914 yards in his college career, which was a school record for 34 years. Woody Strode, him, and Jackie Robinson were three of the the four African American players on the 1939 UCLA Bruins football team. Washington, Strode, and Robinson starred on the 1939 UCLA Bruins football team, in which they made up three of the four backfield players. This was rare to have so many African Americans when only a few dozen played on college football teams. They played eventual conferences and national champion USC, to a 0-0 tie with the 1940 Rose Bowl on the line. It was the first UCLA-USC rivalry football game with national implications. UCLA teammates have commented on how strong Washington was when confronted with racial slurs and discrimination.
He was Born on August 31, 1918 in Los Angles, Califonia. He was little, but little did he know he would be something great!
he died June 24, 1971, in Los Angles
