 Mark Perry, Texas Christian, Player News


  Last fall, Mark Perry was on the field for a large majority of the defensive snaps for the Colorado football team. The sophomore safety wasn't too pleased with how he performed, however. "I'm gonna be completely honest about last year," he said. "I put last year on the back burner. Last year might have been one of my worst years playing football ever, to be honest. That's how I felt. I feel like I hold myself to a high standard, so last year really bothered me. I wasn't making a lot of plays. I was leaving a lot of plays on the field." Preparing for his third season with the Buffaloes, Perry is still just 19 years old - he turns 20 on May 30 - with plenty of room to grow. He's intent on making a lot of progress this spring. "Coming out this spring I already had a chip on my shoulder just to show people that, like, I'm not a bust," Perry said. "I've been here two years, I've been in a different position each year, so I'm still learning. This might be my fourth year playing (defensive back) full time, so I'm still learning every day."

Although Perry didn't live up to his standard last season - he finished with 10 tackles and one pass breakup in the Buffs' five-game regular season - he is an integral part of the defense going forward. A projected starter at free safety, Perry is the most experienced player on the back end of the Buffs' defense. That experience is showing this spring, as the Buffs have completed 10 of 15 practices. "His safety play is night and day difference from what it was in the fall," CU head coach Karl Dorrell said. "He's had his hands on a few catches, a few balls already with interceptions, so I've been very pleased where Mark's at." - Daily Camera

  Mark Perry began the 2019 season as a redshirt candidate. By the end, he was filling a key role off the Colorado bench. Now, as a true sophomore, Perry is setting a high bar for himself. "I have bigger expectations than last year," the 6-foot, 200-pound defensive back said. "I told myself over the offseason I want to be the best DB in the Pac-12, and I'm still standing by that." Where he ranks in the Pac-12 remains to be seen, but there's no question he will play a significant role for the Buffaloes this season. Perry sits atop the depth chart at strong safety, but he's also practiced at Star, a safety/outside linebacker hybrid position. "I'm comfortable everywhere and I expect to be playing everywhere," he said. "I mean, wherever they need me I can play. I can play Star, I can play corner, I can play safety. Whatever the team needs, that's where I can play."

Perry came to CU from Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) High School and didn't play in the first three games of 2019, as former head coach Mel Tucker planned to redshirt him. Injuries to the Buffs' secondary changed those plans, though. Over the last nine games, Perry started once and played 196 snaps. He made the most of those snaps, with 12 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 3.5 tackles for loss, three QB pressures and three pass breakups. "It meant a lot because I know what to expect now," Perry said. "I'm going to have some experience. Going in this year, I have higher expectations than I did last year. I know what to expect, the game is a lot faster. I know different reads, I know a lot of things that I probably wouldn't have known if I didn't get that playing time." - Daily Camera
