Dedication, hard work, prayers, and Uber? We have known that the first three are needed to make it in the NFL, but it wasn’t until recently we realized Uber could be the missing piece. NFL veteran and former USC Trojans defensive back Shareece Wright, went above and beyond to make it to the Buffalo Bills voluntary practices.
When Wright’s flight from Chicago to Buffalo was canceled, and with Davon House catching the last fan ride to OTA’s, Wright’s only option was Uber. The trip from Chicago to Buffalo was over 500 miles and cost the former Trojan $632.08! Being the upstanding Trojan that he is Wright also tacked on a $300 tip for the driver’s trouble.
When @shareecewright2.0 faced a canceled flight in Chicago with no other viable options to make it to @buffalobills practice, he hailed an @uber and 8 hours later made it to Buffalo with 2 minutes to spare having forged a friendship with a refugee turned #uberdriver named Hadi. Talk about #dedication and #commitment. #WrightSZN
The Bills should be excited to have a player willing to go this far to make a voluntary workout, and here’s hoping this season goes as smooth for Wright as his Uber ride.
