WORCESTER – The Assumption College Department of Athletics announced Trenton Wright, of Natick, has earned a spot on the 2018 Assumption College football team.
Wright, Class of 2020, is competing during the Greyhounds’ fall season.
Following a third straight NCAA Division II Tournament appearance in 2017, the Assumption football team was picked first in the 2018 Northeast-10 Conference Preseason Poll and ranked 20th in the national DII preseason poll. Last season, the Greyhounds went 11-2 and were the NE10 Champions. They are hoping to build upon their success under the eye of new head coach, Andy McKenzie.
“Throughout preseason camp, the upperclassmen set the tone with great leadership, energy, enthusiasm, and intensity in practice; we all have high expectations of each other” said Andy McKenzie. “Furthermore, as the school year gets started, our team is also preparing to be the best student-athletes possible, and we will be engaged and make a positive contribution to the campus community as a whole.”
Founded in 1904 by the Augustinians of the Assumption in Worcester, Mass., Assumption College is a Catholic liberal arts institution that offers undergraduate students 35 majors and 47 minors in the liberal arts, sciences, business, and professional studies; as well as master’s and continuing education degrees and professional certificate programs-each through an educational experience that is grounded in the rich Catholic intellectual tradition.
