Washington football heroes: John Ross

John Ross is one of the most dynamic receivers in Washington football history. The current holder of the NFL’s 40 yard dash record, running it in a blazing 4.22 seconds, starred with the Huskies from 2013-2016, after sitting out the 2015 season with a torn ACL.

After his 2016 season, where he was named a First Team All-American by ESPN and Scout, and a Second Team All-American by the Associated Press, CBS, and Fox Sports, he was selected ninth overall by the Cincinnati Bengals. While Jake Browning was honored as the Pac-12 Player of the Year, Ross was given the same honor by the Associated Press.
