DOES RICKY WILLIAMS WANT TO PLAY FOOTBALL? BEWARE:LUTHER WRIGHT DIDN’T WANT TO PLAY HOOPS

Ricky Williams, diagnosed with social anxiety disorder, is giving football another go. Maybe it’s time to admit Ricky has a football body with a mind that has no interest in the sport.

I’m here in Newark. A stone’s throw away from Elizabeth High School. With Ricky’s return, it has me thinking of former New Jersey high school hoops phenom, Luther Wright.

Wright was a 7-foot-2, 265 pound man child who led Elizabeth H.S. to multiple state title in late 80s. He went to Seton Hall and was eventually drafted by the Utah Jazz.

His life looked set when he signed a $2.5 million contract. 

In recent years, he’s ballooned to 400 pounds and has often been homeless.

I’m not saying Ricky Williams is headed toward this kind of tragedy but this Luther Wright profile back in June is a real eye opener.
