Thomas Wright Jr. was a three-sport athlete at Damonte Ranch High School, playing football, basketball, and baseball. He graduated in 2017 after standout seasons in all three sports. In football he played both ways and was all-conference. In baseball he was a team captain and Most Valuable Player. After graduation, Thomas moved to Monmouth, Oregon, to attend Western Oregon University, where he is playing football for the Wolves. I had a chance to catch-up with Thomas this week.
