Wriley met David when pledging Pi Kappa mens' social club at Abilene Christian. They grew close during the pledge season and were both a part of the friends group in which Wriley and Allissah met.
Wriley met Austin after moving to Texas in 2005. They became best friends and Austin was later a major factor in Will and Wrileys' decision to transfer to Abilene Christian. Most of Wriley's early teenage memories involve Austin in some way, shape or form, whether it be at Austin's lake house or at church together. He is one of Wriley's closest friends and helped plan the proposal.
Wriley met Jacob during a tour of Tennessee Tech in the summer of 2011. The two quickly became friends and navigated the choppy waters of freshman year together. They still keep in close contact and even though they live in two separate states, they are as close as brothers.
Wriley and Benjamin are third cousins and during the time Wriley spent in Tennessee, the two became very close. Along with Will and Benjamin's brother Lucas, they would spend hours roaming the woods and hills of Jackson County, finding something to shoot or a cave to explore.
