San Diego Chargers cornerback Shareece Wright is seamlessly making the transition to starting in the NFL. The third year man out of the University of Southern California has taken that role and provided the Chargers with a very solid option in the secondary.
“The transition has been good,” Wright said. “I’m getting used to the role and responsibility of matching up with the best wide receivers and giving us a chance to win.”
Last week against the division-leading Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead, San Diego took a massive step forward with a 41-38 AFC West win. Wright had one of the best games of his young and promising career with six tackles and two pass defenses.
“It was big as far as getting the momentum from the win,” Wright said. “It was a fight against a good team. We were able to overcome the obstacles and gain confidence going forward in the season.”
With so much change on the San Diego defense, Wright has been a constant this year. He has started all eight games he has played in and has contributed 34 tackles, a tackle for loss, and three pass defenses. Wright has helped the Chargers into playoff contention in a wide open AFC wildcard race.Read more... Join the Conversation...
