Today along we learned that two former Arizona Hotshot players would be in attendance for the Summer Showcase in Los Angeles. We now know that a third will also be there, Scooby Wright III, former AZ Hotshots Linebacker will also be in attendance for the event.
Despite being lightly recruited, Wright earned immediate playing time as a true freshman at the University of Arizona in 2013. He started 12 of 13 games, recording 83 tackles and an interception and garnering Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 honors. Wright remained a starter as a sophomore in 2014. He was a finalist for numerous awards, including the Walter Camp Award. He claimed the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Rotary Lombardi Award, Jack Lambert Award, Chuck Bednarik Award and also was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, becoming the first sophomore to ever win the conference award. Wright also earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors. He had the highest finish of any defensive player in the 2014 Heisman Trophy voting, finishing ninth on the ballot. As a junior in 2015, Wright played only 3 games due to injury, recording 2 sacks and 23 tackles. After his junior year, he announced his intentions to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.
Similar to Rahim Moore and Will Sutton, Wright most recently played for the Arizona Hotshots of the AAF as Linebacker.
