Missouri’s L’Damian Washington seeks more vindication

Eight months ago, L’Damian Washington sat in front of a room full of reporters at Southeastern Conference Media Days and told them the goal for Missouri in 2013 was to win the conference. Few believed him then, thanks to Missouri’s season the year before, but he would later be vindicated by the Tigers’ 12-2 season and SEC Championship Game appearance. “It felt great,” Washington said, “especially with the way people laughed at me last year at SEC Media Days.” Washington’s eligibility is now up, but he hasn’t stopped shooting for the stars. In the weeks prior to Missouri’s pro day, which will be held Thursday at Devine Pavilion, Washington was similarly bullish about his chances to make it in the NFL. Now, with a chance to make an impression in front of NFL teams at Missouri’s pro day today, Washington is relaying a similar message, this time about his potential pro career.
