Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Randy Wright (1984-88), in his first year as offensive coordinator at Sturgeon Bay High School, has been awarded a grant of $7,000 for the Clippers' football program from the NFL Youth Football Fund.
Wright was a sixth-round draft pick in 1984 from Wisconsin who went on to play in 46 career games for the Packers. He threw for more than 7,100 yards and connected on 31 touchdown passes with the Green and Gold.
The NFL Youth Football Fund (YFF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by the National Football League and the NFL Players Association. The YFF seeks to use football as a catalyst to promote positive youth development and also insure the health of grassroots football in future generations.
Through the NFL Player-Coach High School Football Grant Program, the YFF allows former NFL players who currently are registered as official head or assistant high school football coaches to apply for grants to help support their high school football teams.
