Warwick High School is proud to select senior basketball captain Connor Perez as this week’s Warwick H.S. Student-Athlete of the Week, sponsored locally by the Allstate Insurance Bill Garcia Agency.
Connor is a standout in two sports – football and basketball for the Wildcats, and he led the his team to a divisional basketball victory over Valley Central recently scoring 15 points, seven assists and six rebounds as a three-year starter and two-time captain for basketball. Connor was a top receiver in Section 9 with nearly 900 yards this fall, including 11 touchdowns for the football team.
He has earned a 93.7 grade point average this past fall, earning NYSPHSAA scholar–athlete recognition. His commitment to his academics has afforded him many options next year as a top football/basketball prospect. Connor plans to study sports management and is active in the high school as a member of the Yearbook Advisory Council and the Communications Team that produces the H.S. television programs.
Connor is the son of Jen and Brian Perez, of Warwick. His sister, Amanda, is a senior at Scranton University and his brothers, eighth grader Brendan and third grader Sean are both rising student–athletes.
