Perry was a PIAA state champion as a freshman this year going 41-2 en route to the AAA 126 title. Prior to his freshman year, the Pennsylvania native took 7th at Fargo and 4th at Super 32. He's currently ranked #16 in the high school national rankings at 126 lbs.

Perry trains at David Taylor's M2 Training Center outside of State College. As he is just a freshman, coaches are legally not allowed to have been in contact with him yet. This also means that he is available to speak with other coaches and go on other campus visits when the time comes.
