This after noon Wake Forest redshirt junior wideout A.T. Perry was named a preseason All-American by the Associated Press.
This is the third Preseason All-America honor for the Lake Worth, Florida native and the first time since 2020 when Boogie landed on the AP’s team.
Perry, who was also ranked as the No. 9 wide receiver in the country by the Lindy’s,a preseason All-American by Phil Steele and a preseason All-American by Athlon Sports, is coming off one of the greatest single seasons by a Wake Forest wide receiver in program history, setting the single-season record with 15 touchdown receptions, three more than any other play in the program’s history.
Additionally, the total was tied for the fifth most in ACC history and the third highest total since 1997.
The Lake Worth, Fla. native also ended the year as just the ninth player in Wake Forest history to cross over the 1,000-yard barrier, tallying 1,293 receiving yards, ranking second and just 37 yards shy of the program record.
Perry will look to prove the preseason notions right in what most presume to be his final year in the Old Gold and Black by being one of the stars of yet another high powered Wake Forest offense.
