Sonoran Hot Reads: Scooby Wright isn't quite perfect

Even Scooby messes up sometimes

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Sports Illustrated ranked the Arizona Wildcats 15th in the preseason poll, and their feature was on none other than Scooby Wright III, and what makes him tick after an incredible 2014 campaign. But the story at the beginning is amazing:

There is also the matter of the large cut across his nose. This one is about a week old. Wright had moved into a new apartment and put a key in the door to open it. It was not the correct key. But he was reasonably sure it was, and that the door was being stubborn. So a 246-pound man who recorded 163 tackles last fall set to work, crouching down and putting some torque into getting this portal to oblige—"I wasn't going full King Kong on it," he notes—when, basically, he ripped the door off and it hit him in the face.

You see that everyone, even Scooby isn't perfect!
