The Friday Highlight: Bryce Perkins

This week let's travel east to the city of Chandler.  There we will be entering "Wolf Country" and Chandler High School.  Chandler is a division I school that is 6-1 and coming off an impressive 56-24 victory over cross town rival and powerhouse Hamilton. 

The Wolves are led by arguably the best quarterback in the state, Bryce Perkins.  Perkins a 6'3 210 pound senior has had a spectacular season thus far.  He has thrown for 1,300 yards and an astonishing 22 touchdowns in his first six games.  He added to that last week in a blowout victory over Gilbert. 

Perkins was inspired by his father, a former NFL player, to play football.  He plays with such a great passion and will to win and it shows with all of the colleges that tried to recruit him.  He has great stats and boast a 3.6 GPA.  He has committed to play for Arizona State next year.  His goals are to start at the college level and make it into the NFL. 

Perkins says football teaches you to be a better person in life and he is living proof of that.  He will finish his high school career soon with hopes of winning a state title.  Even if he doesn't he has had many accomplishments to be proud of including being a part of the first class at Chandler to beat their rival Hamilton High School after losing 17 in a row.
