Central coach Bobby Wright earns 600th win

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - It's playoff time in local high school hoops. Central High clinched a top seed in 7-A in Alabama, but that wasn't the only piece of news this weekend for the Devils.

Their win over Auburn was victory number 600 for head coach Bobby Wright.

It's a major milestone for any coach at any level.

Wright said he didn't even know it was win number 600 until somebody told him after the game. Still a great achievement, but as with any coach, he gave credit to the kids.

"I just felt humbled about it just because I know I've been coaching a long time," Wright said. "I've had some really good athletes and some great assistant coaches helping me so I take that award and feel really great about it, but I want to share it with all my players and coaches because they really put their work in for me."
Wright and the Devils tip off Thursday against Jeff Davis. Expected tip-off time is 11:30 a.m. Eastern.
