Fresh Out of the Military, Can Former 2013 Rookie of The Year Help BIC Get Back into Contention?

Aside from being a great young man and athlete, Zaiquis Wright was a former A7FL teammate of mine back in 2013.  Then, Zaiquis was fresh out of high school, in Sayreville, NJ, where we both played and had the same coach.  Playing in a similar offensive system I was quickly able to implement Wright’s versatility both in the receiving and rushing attack. Wright had a breakout season on both sides of the ball earning him rookie of the year back in 2013.  This was the last time we saw him lace up his cleats as he was putting the wheels in motion for a future in the United States Military.

“The Military was a stepping stone for school so I could pursue my dream to play college and possibly professional football. My Military experience was interesting, it taught me to deal with stuff I didn’t want to and forced me to be away from everyone I loved. I made great friends from all over the world and I enjoyed but at the same time had to view the parts I didn’t like as learning experiences,” says Wright.

Being removed from football since 2013 Wright is still only 24 years old and I believe he definitely has a great shot at playing college football at a high level. Wright who describes his skill set as a mixture of Barry Sanders and Terrell Owens will be lining up with New Jersey BIC in 2019.

“BIC has always been a family I admired from great talent to how they stuck together to win and go through tough losses.” Wright plans on using his A7FL game highlights from 2019 to help him gain some interest at Temple University and at the same time help BIC get back to a championship.
