He wasn't the only former college football player working the camp, either.
Boyle County's Travis Leffew, a Louisville graduate, was here coaching fundamentals even though he has to leave in a few days to hopefully secure a spot with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Former Harrodsburg star Julius Yeast, who played at Ohio State and Eastern, was at the camp along with his three sons.
Then there was former Kentucky quarterback Shane Boyd, another long-time friend of Yeast's.
"This is a great turnout and it is great to see so much excitement in this area over football," said Washington, who had his sons Brennan, 8, and Trevin, 11, participating in the camp. "Yeast is obviously still a big name in this area. Kids - or at least their parents - know what Craig did at Kentucky and then in the NFL.
"These kids are here out of respect for what he did at Kentucky. Parents want their kids to learn from the best, and Craig was one of the best receivers ever at Kentucky."
Washington was working with the receivers and defensive backs as he patiently put each participant through a series of drills.
"We can teach them a lot in these three days. You want your receivers to know the fundamental skills of catching the football. They can gain a lot of insight in a short amount of time if they listen," Washington said.
"Craig is very organized. This camp is well run because he has a lot of great help to teach the kids. Shane Boyd is a NFL quarterback. Leffew could easily be on a NFL roster this year. He has high school coaches out here from Mercer County. You want your kids around people like this."
Washington is no different when it comes to his sons than the other parents who were sitting in the stands at Alvis Johnson Field watching the camp.
"They are both pretty decent players, but they have a lot to learn. This gives them a chance not only to have some fun playing football, but also to learn the right way to play. If they learn the right way, then they are going to want to keep playing," Washington, who has lived in Danville three years, said.
Yeast was doing his best to make sure every player had fun. He checked on players during drills. If someone had a problem, he was there to check. When one player became dizzy in the heat, Yeast walked him off the field.
"I want this thing to work. I want this camp to get bigger and bigger in the years ahead," Yeast said. "This is a great start, but there's more we can do."
