DJ Wright, Looking Forward To Boise State

His friends and teammates didn't believe him. They didn't think the Broncos could do it again. Damion (DJ) Wright tried to tell them his future school, Boise State, would win its third Fiesta Bowl when it took on Arizona in Glendale on December 31.

"I told everybody they were going to win," said Damion Wright, a long-time Boise State commit. "It was crazy how the game started. And the ending was crazy, too."

Wright, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound defensive back from Bishop Mora Salesian High School in Los Angeles, committed to BSU in part because of the dream and vision of the coaching staff.

"They (coaches) tell me they aren't happy with just winning the Mountain West," Wright said. "They want to compete for a national championship. They are all about getting the right recruits in and making that happen. I'm looking forward to being a part of that."

Beating the Wildcats 38-30 proved to Wright -- as well as friends and teammates -- that the Broncos are doing their part to make that dream become a reality.

"It tells me the coaches are doing a good job," he said. "I'm really excited to get up to Boise. I can't wait, to be honest."

With about a month to go before he can sign his National Letter of Intent, Wright is prepping his body and mind for college football.

"I've been working out," he said. "I'm trying to prepare for the upcoming season at Boise State. I want to play as a true freshman. I'm in the weightroom and doing fieldwork."

Wright keeps in touch with a number of incoming Broncos as they build a relationship before any of them steps onto campus. Receivers Bryan Jefferson and Akilian Butler as well as quarterback Brett Rypien are among his regular contacts.

"I'm just getting to know them a little bit," Wright said.
