“He has worked hard in the offseason to get back into game shape,” Brokamp said. “He has already greatly impressed me with his performance in practices and scrimmages. I know Zach is looking forward to playing a full season, and the fact that this is his senior year provides additional motivation.”
Perkins will wear the captain’s armband for the third consecutive season, however, every senior is being called upon to lead the Warriors. In addition to Perkins, Verble, Blankenship, Amor and Winberg along with Landon Dowell, Alex Burdsall, Aaron Starlin and Jason Eisenhart will all play a part in directing the Warriors this season.
With so many seniors, Danville’s underclassmen — juniors Chad McDougle and Scott Williamson, sophomore Keaton Shearin and freshmen Daniel Gerber and Christian Mason — should all benefit from the experience around them.
“(Our) seniors… have stepped up into leader positions and have been excellent role models for the newcomers this year,” Brokamp said. “We are fortunate to have so many players this year that lead both on and off the field.”
