This is Gary Washington, a 1970’s football player at Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind, that was offered a football scholarship at University of Colorado. He only got into one varsity game in his three seasons, and that the only play he was involved was a 72-yard touchdown run in a 1977 23-0 win over Kansas State. It was the last play of the game in the last game of the season. Next season he chose not to play football again, fed up with three seasons of bench-sitting.
