Our American Football writer, Sean Grybos talks about talent coming out of North America.

Chris Wright - Forward/Midfielder
University of New Mexico Lobos
Senior (4rd Year) in 2008
27 February 1987

The University of New Mexico's program consistently sits atop of the NCAA rankings as one of America's finest collegiate teams. Last season, Chris Wright (Fair Oaks, California) made sure that New Mexico remained at the top of the list with a tremendous individual campaign. Wright ended with 12 goals and was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Year. The MPSF is the league in which the New Mexico Lobos compete. Wright is a big target who stands at 6 feet 5 inches (195.5 centimeters).

This spring Wright and his teammates are diligently preparing for the 2008 season. Upcoming exhibitions with collegiate heavyweights Duke University and Wake Forest are fast approaching. I recently spoke with the forward/midfielder about the opportunity to assess the Lobos against the nation's best.

What are the team goals heading into the upcoming spring schedule?

Chris Wright: I think our goals for this spring are to continue to really come together as a team and push each other to improve individually and collectively. So far I feel that we have been very successful with these goals in practice, and I know that we are all eager to play against competition. In regards to spring games, I think the main goal is to all get on the same page for the upcoming season so that when we get back everyone will be firing on all cylinders. That being said however, we want to win our spring games as well.

Are you looking forward to the spring trip to North Carolina to compete against both Wake Forest and Duke?

Chris Wright: Absolutely! Anytime you get to play two prestigious schools such as Wake Forest and Duke you will be very excited. I think that we are especially excited to see how we face up with the defending champions (Wake Forest). We know that we can compete with and beat anyone in the country, so we are all looking forward to the challenge.

What can we expect in 2008 from the Lobos?

Chris Wright: I strongly believe that 2008 will a great year. We have a strong, deep group of guys who are all very talented and work hard for each other. We also have great support from the community, and we want to bring back the big crowds that have graced us in the past. I think that Lobo soccer in 2008 will be an exciting thing to watch.
