ORONO – Everyone loves a redemption story.
The first couple chapters of Maine wide receiver Micah Wright’s 2018 season have been exactly that.
After a rough 2017 Wright is back to his old self, much to the delight of the blue and white.
Through two games the senior wideout has six receptions for 102 yards and three touchdowns, two in Maine’s comeback win over Western Kentucky last weekend.
2017 was a year to forget for Wright. After returning from suspension he suffered a year ending knee injury midway through the season. Wright has battled hard to get back on the field, a second chance he’s certainly making the most of.
“It’s been a long couple years you know things haven’t really gone my way. I’ve fought back and done the necessary things to make sure I’m on the field each and every day and I’m not taking that for granted,” Wright said.
Wright has been one of many productive wide receivers for Maine early on. All three of his touchdowns have displayed tremendous trust between him and quarterback Chris Ferguson. A relationship that was strong long before start of the season.
“I think that comes with just practicing in the summer all the hours we put in and you know UNH was a big one for the chemistry,” Wright added.
