Selma native Jeremiah Wright played on the Auburn offensive line last weekend as the Tigers faced the University of Massachusetts.

The Tigers’ offensive line received high marks in their 59-14 victory over UMass last weekend at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Wright, who plays right guard, was part of a unit that allowed no sacks and gave quarterbacks plenty of time to throw. They opened up massive holes for running backs to run through and only had two penalties.
