LEESBURG - Senior DB/RB/KR Trevone "Trey" Perry (Sr., 6-0, 190) has quietly made his way on the
national recruiting scene. Perry is a two sport athlete that can make a impact on a game no matter
where he lines up at on the football field. He had his coming out party last Friday night against the fifth
rank South Sumter Raiders at Raider Field in Bushnell. Perry broke open a 0-0 game on the first play of
the third quarter with a 94 yard kickoff return.
"(Perry's) score was huge," Trivers said. "It gave us a lead and got us going. We needed a spark and
Tre's run gave us one." "That was a key play," Leesburg coach Randy Trivers said of Perry's return. "The
funny thing, I was watching the blocking and the way the play set up and I thought, 'If he catches the
ball, he gone. That was a big play."
Perry saw his first extended time as running back last Friday after junior running back Anthony Miller sat
out the game with a undisclosed injury. Perry finished the game with a 127 all purpose yards, a half
dozen tackles and pass breakups in the upset win over South Sumter. He recently went on a unofficial
recruiting trip to the University of Florida and watched Alabama beat the Gators at Florida Field.
Athletics are in his DNA, his sister Ashley Perry is a junior at Leesburg High School and led the Lady
Jacket Basketball team in scoring last year. As a sophomore she lead the Lady Jackets to the Class 4A
Girls Basketball State Final Four in 2010. It was the Lady Jackets third Final Four appearance in five
years. Perry's father Bill Perry led Eustis High School to a Class 2A Boys Basketball State
Championship Game appearance in 1992. Perry's grandfather Mathis Walker led Leesburg High
School to the 1977 Class 3A Boys Basketball State Championship. Walker was regarded as the best
point guard in the state of Florida that year.
Perry has made a big impact from his safety position this year after transferring from Eustis High
School where he flew under the recruiting radar. he is the best safety the Jackets have had since
Marcus Niblack in the Early 90's.
After Friday's performance against South Sumter, college recruiters are starting to line up in hopes of
signing Perry on National Signing Day. Don't be surprised if he ends up being the second Leesburg
High School player to commit to the University of Miami for the 2012 season. So far the University of
Florida is the front runner for Perry collegiate playing career.
