Desi Washington: My Journey

Everyone has a story to tell, have a listen to Desi’s incredible journey.

No more Suit and Tie

Everyone sees the Glory but no one sees the Journey. Desi is no super man but it doesn’t take super powers to have heart and fight. From the moment he walked out of college, Desi has been chasing his dream. From workouts with current NBA Pros, to almost taking a job back home, to making his name known overseas. He’s been fighting for his spotlight his whole life, so it comes as no surprise that he’s gone through the ups and downs of the Pro circuit.
The road is never an easy one to travel, there are countless men and women who chase this dream only to fall short. Desi has chased it from Pennsylvania all the way to Turkey with a few stops in between.

No Fear

He’s living proof that if you stick to your plan and listen to your heart, you will find success. His opportunities came unexpectedly and he worked hard to build on them. Never falling victim to the big names surrounding him, and always playing his game the way he trained for it.

Seton Hall

The Seton Hall basketball program and its rich history created an open opportunity. Saint Peter’s hadn’t beaten Seton Hall in a contest in 17 seasons. The challenge was ripe for the taking. Learn more on what Desi did by clicking this link. The Buzzer Beater Eater
