Last night college football honored it's best defensive player. The award is named after Bronko Nagurski. Arizona linebacker Scooby Wright won the award. He led the Wildcats to the PAC 12 South title and a date in the Fiesta Bowl. Wright was not very well known nationally until the Wildcats knocked off unbeaten Oregon earlier in the season. Wright literally took the football out of Marcus Mariota's hands to seal the victory.
The Nagurski Award is a great accomplishment for Wright and the University of Arizona. It helps for recruiting and it also helps put the Arizona Wildcats on the map again for college football. This award adds to Wright's accomplishments which include the Oregon win and a win against Arizona State, the first rivalry win for Coach Rodriguez. Wright looks to add one more award to his trophy case, the MVP of the Fiesta Bowl.
