Justin Washington was rushed to a San Antonio hospital hours before the biggest football game of his life, his skin red, throat closing and heart pounding.

The Arizona Wildcats’ team trainers knew the symptoms of anaphylaxis, the result of a severe allergic reaction. Washington was too scared, angry and anxious to care about the specifics.

“Worst experience I ever had,” he said. “Never again.”

Washington’s nightmarish off-season started Dec.29, when the Texas native and UA starter ate a pre-Alamo Bowl salad containing pine nuts – a food that Washington had no idea he was allergic to. UA trainers administered an epinephrine shot and took him to a local hospital.
