What Washington’s Brady Kulbeth lacks in size, he makes up for in speed.

The 5-foot-8, 135-pound senior has proven he can make plays all over the field while playing receiver, running back, defensive back, and on special teams.

With standout quarterback Brock Harmon graduated, Kulbeth is one of several speedsters expected to lead the way while Washington breaks in a new player under center.

Q: With Glenn Stowe as a first-year starter at quarterback this season, do you expect to be playing an even bigger role?

A: Yes, I do, but he’s going to have to step up a lot. I think he can pull it off. Our passing game may not be as good, but our running game can be as good if not better than last year with him.

Do you think after the first four or five games the offense will know its strengths better?

I think after the first three games he’ll be pretty set in at the quarterback position and we’ll all know what it is that we need to do to be successful. I think we’ll have a chance to be pretty good, but we’ll just have to see.

Have you begun to take on a leadership role as you enter your senior season?

Yes, for sure. I’m going to be playing a lot for us, like I was last year, so being one of the guys who is on the field a lot I’ll look to do more of the (leadership) things.

What’s the ultimate goal for Washington this season?

Well, we’ve made it to the playoffs for 23 years in a row now so first we’re trying to keep history going with making the playoffs. But the ultimate goal is winning a gold ball.
