This upcoming season, Cameron Wright of Ralston Valley High School in Arvada, Colorado returns as one of the top signal callers in Colorado high school football. Last season, the 6-2 190 pound Wright established himself as a solid dual threat quarterback as he threw for 1,274 yards and eight scores and rushed for 727 yards and three scores. Behind Wrights leadership, Ralston Valley went 11-2 making it to the 4A state semi-finals.
As a QB, Wright, a southpaw, shows a strong understanding of the game, evidenced by a solid pocket presence. Further, he has the arm strength to make the necessary throws, this is coupled with enough athleticism to make plays with his feet. Traditionally, Ralston Valley is a run first team but the offense may open up a little this year due to Wright's skills and the return of Wright's favorite target, 6-4 200 pound receiver Brandon Ribble. Last season, Ribble caught eighteen balls for over 300 yards.
Wright has put in countless hours in preparation for his final season with Ralston Valley in an attempt to get the Mustangs back to the playoffs and raise his own recruiting profile. Wright camped this summer at Utah and Colorado State and though neither Mountain West school has offered, they look to be the most interested in Wright's services. According to Wright's father, "both schools are in regular contact with Cam and Cameron would be honored to play for either." In an interesting twist regarding Cameron's recruitment, Colorado State may be interested in Wright as a safety. At an athletic 6-2 190 and with a good sense of the game, one can see why the Colorado State defensive staff would be interested in Wright. Whatever the potential college position, a strong senior season by Wright will be beneficial for Ralston Valley and Wright's recruiting prospects.
Here are highlights from Wright's junior season.
