Did You Know: Tress Way

The Washington Redskins clinched the NFC East division title Saturday night and are headed to the NFL playoffs. The 'Skins currently sport an 8-7 record with their regular-season finale coming in Dallas against the Cowboys this Sunday, January 3rd.

Did you know that one of the Redskins' starting special team members has a direct connection to the sport of softball? Punter Tress Way, who currently sports a 45.4 average per punt and has accumulated more than 2,600 yards this season, is married to the former Brianna Turang.

If Turang's name sounds familiar, it should. Playing for Oklahoma from 2010-2013, Turang amassed a career .356 batting average, including a .404 mark in her senior season. An all-WCWS team member in 2012, she ended her career with an all-conference first-team nod and helped lead her squad to the national championship in '13. She was a third-round draft pick that same year, selected #9 overall by the Akron Racers.
