2022’s Alex Perry is an outstanding leader on and off the court

Alex Perry is one of the best players from the Tampa, FL area in the Class of 2022.  


The 6-foot-6, 170-pound Perry, who attends Port Charlotte High, is a dynamic player that works as a guard and forward. 



No matter the opponent, every game Perry is determined to give it his all. 


Perry is going all out. 


The motor is always at full throttle whenever Perry steps between the lines.


“My mindset is to set other people up to score while also looking to attack the rim and also shoot the ball with confidence,” Perry said. 


Perry has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the court. Perry tells why he enjoys the game of basketball so much. 


“What I love the most is definitely hard competition in the games,” Perry said. 


Perry has learned many valuable lessons from playing basketball that he applies to his everyday life. 


“This game has taught me to just be a good teammate/person and people will do the same to you,” Perry said. “Also, hard work always pays off.”


Perry takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Perry makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.


“I demonstrate being a good teammate by leading by example and talking to them on the floor to help them be successful,” Perry said. “The best advice I give is to just be confident.”


Perry is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.


“I’ve learned to just control what you can and everything will come to you,” Perry said. “The best advice I’ve been given is to do well in school because there’s life after sports.”


Perry patterns his play after the reigning NBA MVP. 

“I’ve always looked up to Giannis because of the way he works off the court and how he attacks the rim so hard on the court,” Perry said. “Also, how he is a great teammate and person to everybody around him.”

Perry lists history as his favorite subject in school. 


“I love learning about what happened in history and comparing them to how they changed today’s world,” Perry said. 


Perry explains his collegiate aspirations. 


“My dream colleges are Oregon and Florida,” Perry said. “I’ve always just loved Oregon’s swag and how they run things. For Florida, I love the campus and area around there. It’s so nice and it feels like a family atmosphere.”


Perry is striving for greatness in all that he does. 


“My goal on the court is to become a national ESPN recruit and off the court my goal is to get a 4.0 GPA,” Perry said.
