Brandon Perry (6'1", 190), the rising senior running back/defensive back for the Porter Ridge Pirates is one of the best two-way players in the county. Heck, he's one of the best in the state of North Carolina.
Perry and his Pirates made a deep run into the playoffs last season to have it all end in dramatic fashion.
Perry's end came early at the goal line in a 4A quarterfinal game versus Grimsley High School when he suffered a game-ending injury on a controversial call.
I caught up with Brandon Perry two months ago at the Appalachia Prep Combine, where he discussed that game and the call.
