Whatcom Hoops Boys Top 30: #3 Jeremiah Wright

In an incredible season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops is ranking the top 30 boys. Each day we’ll feature an amazing player in our county and count down until we get to #1. So join us daily as we honor the best of the best.


Jeremiah Wright, senior, Lynden Christian

WHY HE’S #3: Wright was big for the Lyncs and not just because of his solid 6-foot-5 build. LC’s literal centerpiece the past three years as the Lyncs captured two state titles and this year’s third-place at state, Wright averaged 15.2 points on 59 percent shooting, 7.2 rebounds, and 1 block a game. But it was his performances in the biggest games — especially at state where he was a two-time first-team all-state tournament selection and the 2023 MVP — that he’ll be remembered for. He was a first-team all-Northwest Conference selection, chosen for the all-state seniors game, and one of two LC players (along with Dawson Bouma) who lost only six games over the past three seasons.

COACH TIM ZYLSTRA: “Jer is one who stepped up in big games. He brought stability in the middle for the last three years, and he has the numbers to back it up. He had great state tournaments, and he’ll go down as one of the better big guys in LC’s program. He wasn’t afraid of the big moments, he always came to play, he was solid all the time.”
