Arizona Wildcats LB Scooby Wright named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week

Arizona Wildcats linebacker Scooby Wright III has been named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week.

The sophomore recorded three sacks, three forced fumbles and eight total tackles in UA’s 59-37 win Saturday at Washington State.

For the season, Wright leads the Pac-12 with five forced fumbles, and his nine sacks are good for third-best in the conference.

Wright’s award follows up Arizona wide receiver Cayleb Jones’ Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honor after UA’s home win against Cal on Sept. 20.
