2011 Player Spotlights: Mason Perez
Stat to Note
Last season Perez led the Sunflower League in interceptions, collecting six through the Indian's 10 games.
Perez' junior season stat line was as solid as they come, with him recording 40 tackles (25 of which were solo) on top of his six interceptions. SM North didn't have the linebacking or defensive line corps of some of the better teams in the league (which meant Perez had more activity at his secondary position), but he clearly responded well when his number was called on to make a play. He was also a solid receiver for the Indians and we should see an increased role for him on the offensive side of the ball this season.
With good size and tremendous ball skills Perez is a tough defender for any quarterback to throw at. SM North has really struggled the past few seasons but it's players like Perez that are giving the program hope for 2011 and into the future.
