Brandon Perry, a senior DB/RB at Porter Ridge, is one of the most gifted athletes in Union County. Behind his ever-present smile is a hard-working athlete that fails to surprise me anytime I see him in action.
Unfortunately, I, along with everyone else in our county and state, cannot see Perry perform on the gridiron this fall, thanks Covid-19. Still, I was able to catch him at yesterday's Elite Sport Training Camp & Combine Showcase at Matthews Sportsplex.
I've seen the young man fly on the football field, and last night I saw him take flight off a standing broad jump. Below, the 11-foot standing broad jump by Brandon Perry.
