Jeff Wright (1976-79/ Football)


Jeff Wright played football for Ault in a four-year career from 1976 through 1979, and has virtually dominated the Nevada pass receiving record book for a decade and a half. When he finished his career, he held every Nevada pass-catching record. He is still prominent in all top-ten receiving lists, including career catches (175, the record recently broken by Bryan Reeves), yards gained receiving (3,034), and touchdowns receiving (27). He was named All-Big Sky Conference in his senior season, his team’s first in that conference. In the years Wright was a team member, the Wolf Pack went 35-11 and made two appearances in the 1AA Playoffs (1978 and ’79). Wright went on to live in his native Vacaville, CA and was in the education field in the Vacaville school system.
