Buccaneers will open 2019 season at Appalachian State

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (May 28, 2019) – As ETSU anticipates the kickoff of the new campaign, will count down the days by featuring the program’s 15 seniors on the site and via social media platforms throughout the summer months.

Today marks 95 days until the Bucs open the season at Appalachian State on Aug. 31 at Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, N.C. Senior defensive lineman No. 95 Kendell Wright (Indianola, Miss) is the second player to be featured in the Senior Segment.

Wright transferred to ETSU prior to the 2018 campaign, arriving in Johnson City, Tenn. from Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Wesson, Miss. During the 2017 season with the Wolves, Wright totaled eight tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Mississippi native is entering his final stint with the Bucs in 2019.
