Boys Varsity Basketball · Athlete of the Week: Jonathan Wright


Congratulations to Jonathan Wright for being named Athlete of the Week. The Sports and Entertainment Marketing classes at Socastee High School in partnership with the athletic department sponsor this weekly award.

Jonathan is a senior on the boys’ basketball team and has been playing the sport since he was just three years old. “My father inspired me to start playing basketball and the player I look up to the most is Stephen Curry,” he explained. Jonathan has a very simple pre-game ritual. He prays right before he hits the floor. “The thing I enjoy the most about being on the team is bonding and celebrating with my teammates,” he said. Jonathan and the Braves are in 4th place in the region standings with a 5-4 region record and have clinched a playoff spot. 

Coach Hilton said the following about his senior leader: “Jon Wright has been a vital part of Socastee Basketball. He leaves it on the court every time he steps out. He has been a great example of a student-athlete and represents the school and basketball program very well. It has been a pleasure to coach a gym rat and student-athlete like Jon Wright.”
