UCLA star left halfback KENNY WASHINGTON takes advantage of an excellent block thrown by Bruins left end WOODY STRODE (lower left) and cuts the ball upfield against the University of California Golden Bears during the Pacific Coast Conference meeting at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on November 4, 1939. In this contest, Washington rushed for 141 yards (6.4 avg) and one touchdown on a 35-yard dash while also throwing a pair of touchdown passes (one of which was caught by Strode) as UCLA triumphed 20-7 over its “Big Brothers To The North” from Berkeley. In the background to the left is UCLA right tackle MLADEN ZARUBICA (# 24), the homegrown three-year letterwinner from Hollywood who was named Second Team All-Pacific Coast by the Associated Press in 1938.

Associated Press – San Francisco, December 8th, 1939
————————————————————————————–
“KENNY WASHINGTON, UCLA halfback whose phenomenal playing this season brought him the admiration of teammates and opponents alike, polled the largest number of votes to easily take first place in the Associated Press’ 15th annual All-Pacific Coast eleven.

Washington, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder, received 46 first place votes in the selection of the 1939 all-star team, a consensus of 63 of the West’s top coaches, game officials and sportswriters. He was also on the 1938 (AP All-Pacific Coast) eleven. HARRY SMITH, 211-pound Southern California guard, was second with 45 votes; he, too, was a member of the mythical 1938 squad.

The two (Washington and Smith) will meet Saturday in the U.C.L.A. – U.S.C. clash, which will probably determine the west’s Rose Bowl choice.”
