It was a busy week for Brahman senior Veyon Washington who verballed his commitment to play college football at Florida Atlantic University in the fall of 2020 and was also named by ESPN West Palm as one of the top 63 players of the Palm Beaches and Treasure coast, an area that covers over sixty high schools.

Washington announced on Twitter Sunday night that he is 100% committed to playing for Coach Lane Kiffin at FAU. Veyon sited the attention received from the coaching staff and his experience on campus during a summer camp as his main reasons for choosing the Owls. The plan is for Washington to play defensive back. Washington received interest from several other schools but FAU was the first to offer a scholarship, something that made an impression on him.

On Wednesday, ESPN West Palm came to Okeechobee’s practice to present an invitation to their annual Top 63 banquet spotlighting their list of the top players in the Pam Beaches and Treasure Coast. With his teammates behind him, Washington accepted the invitation from Kristina Costanza. Costanza spoke to the team about what an honor it was not only for Veyon, but Okeechobee as a program to have a player on this list. There are over 60 high schools and a couple thousand football players within the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast Schools.

Washington played several positions last season for the Brahmans including quarterback, running back, wide receiver, kick returner and defensive back. Washington recorded 63 tackles last year and five interceptions. He also tallied over six hundred yards from scrimmage and scored three touchdowns.

Okeechobee begins their season on August 16th with the preseason Kickoff Classic at Jupiter High School. All games will be broadcast live on WOKC.
