COOKEVILLE, Tenn. — The ability to turn off the light switch and be in the bed before the room gets dark is a trait that college football coaches covet.
Vincent Perry may not have skills similar to comic book heroes but there's plenty enough scoot in his step to impress college coaches.
In 2014, the Hillsboro (Tenn.) High School speedster ran the football 135 times for 1,218 yards with 18 touchdowns. He also caught 34 passes for 522 yards and three scores.
Perry’s 41-yard touchdown reception accounted for the Burros (14-1) only points in the TSSAA Class 5A state championship loss to West 23-6.
The Nashville native gave his verbal commitment to the Tennessee coaching staff back on Oct. 8.
