Cheltenham’s Kion Wright credits mom for D1 football offers

CBS News reported that Cheltenham High School football standout Kion Wright continues to receive high-profile collegiate offers. The defensive end and linebacker is one of the highest recruited players in the area.

According to Kion, his mother Star, who is also his coach, has a good deal to do with his success.

“I try to still maintain that mother-son relationship off the field,” Star Wright said. “On the field, it’s just strictly field. There’s really no motherly love on the field.”

Star Wright has been a coach at Cheltenham High School for two years. She also plays linebacker in a women’s professional football league for a team she owns, the Philadelphia Phantoms.
