By Nick Nunn
Joey Perpoli has been awarded a National Athleadership Grant by the NCSA Athletic Recruiting and the NFLPA.
NCSA Athletic Recruiting is a recruiting network and leadership platform, which assists student athletes while they decide among collegiate scholarships, internships, and careers that match up with their personal and professional goals.
This award is granted to student athletes from all sports who qualify based on community leadership, academic achievement, and athletics.
Because of his being selected as a recipient of the Athleadership Grant, NCSA will work with Perpoli during his high school career to give him, “the tools that he needs to be successful in recruiting and in life,” said Chris Krause, CEO and founder of NCSA Athletic Recruiting.
Head Coach Bill Malone offered his congratulations to Perpoli on the achievement.
“We’re very happy for Joey in getting this recognition. We’re even more pleased that he chose to come to school here with us a couple of years ago and make the move from California. He has been a pleasant addition to our football team and our student body.”
