Big Week For Wright

Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian athlete Damion Wright (6-1, 195), helped lead Ground Zero to the Passing Down Best of the West title on Sunday.

As if the week couldn't get any better, two more schools, both FBS programs, offered Wright.

"Idaho offered as a quarterback and Boise State offered as a DB," said Wright.

The offer from Idaho was Wright's first from an FBS school as a quarterback, joining offers he had from Azusa Pacific and Morehouse.

The Boise State offer came for the secondary.

"Coach (Marcel) Yates, the defensive coordinator, offered me as a DB," said Wright. "Most likely it's to play safety. He likes my size and athleticism and there is a possibility I can line up at corner. He said he loved my highlights."

Now Wright is hoping more come in.

"We'd been on spring break, but coaches will be out the next few weeks," said Wright. "Pac-12, SEC and ACC schools are all coming by."

Wright helped lead Jurupa Hills in Fontana to a CIF title last fall as a quarterback, but moved to Los Angeles and now will play quarterback for Salesian.

But defense is where most FBS schools like him.

"Most schools like me as a DB and playing on the defensive side," said Wright. "I'm accepting it because I just want to play college football."

Wright will still work at quarterback this spring, going to the Elite 11 in San Francisco and then the Oregon NFTC plus a handful of college camps.
