Multiple Teams · Kent City athlete relishes second chance — Comeback Kid Will Wright


Just before Christmas, New 8 ran a story on Kent City senior Will Wright, documenting his return to the hardwood one year after sustaining serious injuries from an accident on his way to school.  Unsure if he would be able to participate in athletics, Wright returned in the spring to run track, where he was part of the 4×100 meter relay team that broke the school record.  Due to the nature of his injuries, Wright was unable to play football, but was there cheering on his teammates each Friday night.   Now that the basketball season is here, Wright is back, and is a key ingredient in the Eagle’s recipe for success.
