One of the state’s top small school prospects, Vian 2020 Elijah Wright is putting together a big junior season, helping the Wolverines to a 6-2 record.
A 6’0, 200-pound prospect, Wright is an impact player all over the field who has made plays on both sides of the ball. His main position is strong safety, but has come up big at receiver, running back, strong side linebacker and is a threat on specials teams as a punt and kick returner.
“I would describe my style of play physical and fast,” he says.
Six Star Football recently caught up with Wright and asked him about his season.
