Way, a 2012 graduate from OU, was waived by the Bears in the middle of last week. He was claimed on waivers by the Redskins shortly thereafter. Though initially expected simply to provide little more than competition for incumbent third-year pro Robert Malone, Way averaged more than 51 yards/punt in two punts during Thursday night's game against the Buccaneers. The excellent performance impressed coaches, and Malone was released.
Tress Way is married to former OU softball star Brianna Turang. Turang starred for Patty Gasso's Sooners for four seasons, helping lead them to the 2013 National Championship. She followed her collegiate career with a single season with the Akron Racers in the NPF.
