Perschon Working Hard

Midwest Regional Manager
Posted Mar 17, 2011

Conant High (Ill.) offensive tackle Paul Perschon is a big lineman who is not letting his size do the talking, as he is working each week on speed, technique, and more. Will it result in an offer?

At 6'5, 315-lbs, Paul Perschon has the size colleges look for. Currently without an offer, there are a number of schools that have him on the radar, and he is keeping in close contact.

"Wyoming, I actually just got off the phone with a coach from Bowling Green. I just called him. I hear from Iowa State, Illinois State, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, Duke was, but I don't think they are anymore."

Perschon says he has not visited any of those schools yet, but is visiting Bowling Green this week.

Part of his week will also include working out at Core 6, a training ground for top prospects in the Chicago area, to make sure he's ready for college camps and the fall season.

"I work out once a week for speed and once for form technique. As of right now, the workouts are very intense."

The program is run by three former Big Ten players and offensive line specialist Mike Jones, an All-Conference performer at Iowa has helped Perschon along.

"Mike Jones does a good job. I'm comfortable with what we're doing," Perschon explained. "He's helped me with my footwork, my speed, foot speed, and conditioning. It's absolutely intense. There are very little breaks. It's really helped conditioning and all that."

With work ethic like that, schools can expect to see an even better Perschon very soon.
