He recently competed in the Gerald Pilz All Star Game that was held at College of the Ozarks last weekend, where has was one of the top players on the white team that won the tournament. Wright also competed in the Missouri Challenge All Star Game that was held at Drury University in June.
Wright has had a whirlwind year in basketball, as he was selected in two All Star Games and helped his team bring home their first District Championship in over 12 years. Crocker also tied the school record of making it to the quarterfinal round of the state tournament.
Wright said this about what it took to get where he is, “It's amazing to see that all my hard work is paying off but I would’ve never made it this far without the help and support from my friends, family, coaches and God.” He also said this about his role on his new team, “My role will be to come into the this season and absolutely work my tail off, get better everyday, hustle and give 100% every second.”
When he looked back on his greatest memory with Crocker basketball, he said this, “My favorite memory was definitely winning the District Championship. Every year I’ve been here in Crocker I've been staring at the banners on the wall wanting to hang one up more than anything.“
When asked what advice he can give about playing in college, he said this, “It will be to work hard and get into the gym everyday and to have a positive attitude and work ethic.”
He could not pick one greatest opponent but sad this instead, “ Honestly there are a lot of teams that I loved playing and competing against, but I’d have to say Iberia, Newburg and Richland. I picked these mainly because you knew that they were going to bring it every night.”
Wright also added this about what the Crocker community meant to him, “I’ve for sure had the best years of my life here in Crocker thanks to my the support and brotherhood of my teammates and coaches. It has been an honor playing with them and it will always hold a special place in my heart.”
