Wright was an All-Southeastern Conference center fielder each of his two seasons and led the SEC in home runs his junior year with 13 dingers. Record at Dora: 4-6 2002 Goals: "Our goal is to make the playoffs," Wright said. "It has been a while since they've done that around here (7 years). To do that, we are going to have to play a lot of people that we don't know that much about. We can't worry about that. We've got to take care of ourselves and everything else will fall into place."
