Scholar Athlete: Calvary Christian Third Baseman, Chris Wright

WRIGHT HOLDS A 4.18 GPA AND WAS THE GICAA'S RBI LEADER IN 2016

When it comes to bringing in runs, Chris Wright’s teammates can count on him.

“Last year I led the league, the whole GICAA, in RBI with 35 I think,” he said.

The Calvary Christian third baseman is continuing his hot streak at the plate this season, hitting .453 with 22 RBI and counting.

“It’s a lot of pressure to know I kind of have to set the standard again at the plate,” Wright said. “So it’s a lot of pressure.”

But Chris is used to pressure.

His coach calls him a leader on and off the field for a good reason.

He holds a 4.18 GPA and has taken all of the AP classes the school offers.

Between those classes and year-long baseball workouts, Chris has learned a lot.

“Nothing comes easy,” he said. “You always have to work for everything so it’s really helped me a lot to achieve my goals.”

Like being accepted into Georgia Tech’s civil engineering program.

The school’s early admittance rate is only 28% and Chris was accepted in that select group.

“It’s incredible to know that I was accepted to go there,” he said. “It’s been a lifelong goal so it’s pretty great.”
