The Wright Way: A Titan Comeback Tale (VIDEO)

Sunday, December 29, 2013

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.-- David Wright missed most of his senior year of football at Westminster due to a gruesome ankle injury.  However, the tight-end who walked at graduation last May was granted an extra season of eligibility.  He began the road to recovery as he returned to school for a fifth season with the Titans football team.

He now holds a degree in business administration from Westminster.  He also capped off his football career by playiing in the D3 Senior Classic on Dec. 13 in Virginia at Salem Stadium, home of the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl.  Each year, the D3 Senior Classic provides its participants and their families with an unmatched experience including a banquet to pay tribute to their stellar football careers. 

WCN presents a short documentary by Joshua Dunn that chronicles Wright's comeback after an injury that should have ended his play on the football field in 2012.
