Wright Attends 2018 ALFCA Convention
Wright Equipment has been a long-time sponsor of the Alabama Football Coaches Association (ALFCA). The ALFCA is near and dear to our heart because it aligns with the mission of our organization to support high school and college athletes with high-quality equipment. Wright is always excited to head to the ALFCA Convention to see all the coaches we've worked with over the years as well as meeting the new coaches. It's also very inspirational to hear the various coaches speak in detail about the sport they love and the strategy of it all. Among the speakers this year was Auburn offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey, Alabama strength coach Scott Cochran, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn, Alabama head coach Nick Saban and former head coach Tommy Tuberville. During the ALFCA convention, there is also an awards ceremony, where the Coach of the Year, Assistant Coach of the Year, and the Lifetime Achievement award are presented. Our friend from Deshler High School and former Wright team member, John Mothershed, was recognized as a Lifetime Achievement recipient as well as Coach Bob Finley of W.A. Berry High School, who received this award posthumously, and Jackie O'Neal of Reeltown High School and Livingston State University. This year our Director of Operations and General Manager, Kris Strickland attended with our Director of Outside Sales, Allen Creasy. Both thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and can't wait to return next year.
