          And we know, of course, that the original GW was reputed to be quite a long jumper in his day...

              A kid from Virginia named George Washington was recruited by UVA to throw the Javelin, when they heard how well he could throw silver dollars across rivers.....unfortunately Geoge declined their offer, and embarked on a military and then political career instead.

                Back in the 50's, Dinah Washington was going to go out for Track, but the day of tryouts, her father instead insisted that she go for a singing audition instead... both events were scheduled for the same day. Who knows what might have happened if not for this conflict ?

                    I am quite sure that no one knows, but I am also quite sure, unfortunately,that you will soon be telling us.

                        Is he the same Gene Washington who was a wide receiver in the NFL (49's?)?

                          I am not sure but do not think so. . I think there also was a Gene Washington that played football for Stanford. I believe he's the one you are thinking of.
