Shareece Wright’s broken left hand is healing ahead of schedule, according to Colton High School football coach Harold Strauss. Wright, a star running back/defensive back for the Yellowjackets, had X-rays taken Tuesday at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. Strauss said Wright is able to move his fingers and could play defense in a short cast on Friday when the Yellowjackets meet Redlands at the University of Redlands. Or if Colton elects to hold him out of Friday’s game, Strauss said Wright could return at full force the following week, to play both offense and defense.

Wright injured his hand in the second half of Colton’s loss to Los Angeles Crenshaw on Sept. 23. After being treated, it was estimated that he would miss anywhere from four weeks to the rest of the season. Despite playing in just two-plus games, he ranks fifth in the county in rushing with 605 yards on 35 carries (17.3 average) with six touchdowns. Both Colton linebacker Allen Bradford and Wright are being heavily recruited, with coaches from California, Arizona and Oregon showing up at last Friday’s game against Yucaipa, a 66-0 Yellowjackets victory. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
