Athlete David Perkins (South Bend, Ind./Washington), a prospect that the college coaches will be checking out this spring, excels on both sides of the football. As a running back this past season, the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder had 85 carries for 783 yards. On the defensive side of the ball, he had 63 tackles, 21 tackles for loss and 13 sacks. "I started out my freshman year at Kalamazoo (Mich.) Central and then transferred to Washington High School in South Bend, Ind., for my junior year," Perkins said. "I expected a lot from myself coming off the camp and combine circuit this past summer. I really wanted to have a big junior season and that's exactly what I did. I was named junior all-state and made several all-area teams." The scholarship offers for Perkins are starting to roll in.
