With the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers enjoying open date this weekend, a window of opportunity presented itself for a familiar face to return to his Big Country home. 

James Washington, who starred at both Stamford High School and Oklahoma State University, made his way to the SHS fieldhouse on Thursday to say hello to coach Ronnie Casey and the current roster of Bulldogs.

Washington, who has reeled in five catches for 49 yards and a score through six games in his rookie season this year, took advantage of the open date to visit his parents in Stamford and swing by his old stomping grounds at the high school, where he starred in football, basketball and track.
