Arizona football: Scooby Wright wins all the awards, doesn't care

Scooby Wright had a good week, won lots of things, but that doesn't matter

After forcing three fumbles, resulting in three sacks, Arizona Wildcats linebacker Scooby Wright III won a bunch of awards, including Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week and Walter Camp Football Foundation National Defensive Player of the Week.

But he doesn't care.

"Eh, I don't really care much for individual awards," Wright said. "We won the game, and we're playing well, and I get good opportunities to make plays for the team."

He had a pretty entertaining take on not being able to recover any of the three forced fumbles too.

"Those were some of the luckiest bounces I've ever seen in the world," he said smiling. "I was watching the first one and I was like 'how does the ball land right at his feet?' Then on the one where the o-lineman had it and it bounced up into his hands and I got up and saw the offensive lineman running by I was like 'what happened?'"

Scooby may not be impressed with your awards, but keep sending them. Thanks.
