Grantland Channel: L’Damian Washington

Grantland, a sports and pop culture blog run by award-winning columnist and national bestselling author Bill Simmons, produced a feature on Mizzou Made wide receiver L’Damian Washington and his path to the NFL Draft.

The feature gives a glimpse of his hometown of Shreveport, La., his family life, his preparation for Mizzou’s Pro Day, and the factors that motivate the often-overlooked receiver to prove doubters wrong.

For four years, fans, sports writers and scouts alike have watched number 2 in black and gold make spectacular catches and game-changing plays. What has gone unseen however, is the selflessness that drives him.

Through this piece and a feature-length documentary coming out in the fall, Grantland tells the full story of L’Damian Washington.
