Mar’ion Perisch is a player who can do it all. The ability to play quarterback, safety, kicker, and punter shows how valuable he is to any team. Luckily for the Joilet Ravens, they can use Perisch on every single play. Whether it’s on offense, defense, or special teams, he’ll be out there looking to make a game-changing play. The 11-year-old Perisch takes advantage of his talent, but he’s always looking to get better. In order to have a bigger impact, training in his free time is something Perisch looks forward to. He attends Throw It Deep Quarterback Academy, where he improves his accuracy, footwork, the ability to read a defense’s formation, and much more. Anything to put himself on top of the opposing team, Perish loves to win. He was a part of a state championship in 2020 and a D1 nation championship team.
Perisch emulates his game from Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, as he’s always looking to make the big play to put his team ahead. Perisch loves to be mobile, proving to be a mess for the defense to figure out. His favorite play is the read-option, which is highly successful in today’s game. A defense needs to figure out if the quarterback is going to hold the ball to run it or hand it off to the running back; with Perisch’s slick, fast-paced play, it’s tough for the defensive front to figure out what’s going to happen. One of his favorite things about football is controlling the offense, and since he’s the signal-caller, the game is solely in his hands.
While succeeding on the field is something Perisch takes pride in, he is also proud of the stuff he does off the field. He’s an honor roll student, proving to care about what he does in the classroom to make himself a better person and a player. A three-sport athlete, football, basketball, and baseball, while motivated by his father, makes him the best player and person he can be.
Since Perisch picked up a football at age seven, he has set his goals for the coming future. Playing football at Division I schools such as LSU, Florida, or the Georgia Bulldogs is a dream of his, and with his ongoing success so far, anything is possible.
