Worldwide Wildcats: Bruschi climbs Kilimanjaro; UA hoops signee and more

Former, current and future Arizona Wildcats are always making news. Here is some of the latest:

Tedy Bruschi

The former All-American defensive end didn’t get into the College Football Hall of Fame last week — his ex-teammate Rob Waldrop did — but how cool is Bruschi’s latest adventure?

Bruschi recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with former Titans coach Jeff Fisher, former Eagles tight end Chad Lewis and four injured military service members to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.

He reached the summit and called it a “truly memorable experience.”

Bruschi writes about it for ESPNBoston.com.

Josiah Turner

The point guard signee, who likely will face even more pressure and have a bigger role as a freshman because of MoMo Jones’ transfer, was selected the MVP of a prep tournament in New York over the weekend.

He talks about Jones’ transfer and his future with the Cats at Zagsblog.com.

Ricky Elmore

Elmore was a sixth-round pick of the Green Bay Packers last month, perhaps slipping in the draft because of a pedestrian time in the 40-yard dash. UA defensive ends coach Jeff Hammerschmidt tells a good anecdote to Packers.com about how fast Elmore really is.

Chelsea Goodacre

She will be the Arizona softball team’s catcher next season, replacing departing senior Stacie Chambers. In the meantime, Goodacre is part of the U.S. Junior Women’s Team, and she is writing a blog for USAsoftball.com.

Derrick Williams

Last week, we embedded a video from part of one of Williams’ media interviews at the NBA combine. Here is another part of that interview from DraftExpress.com:
