DITR: QB Beau Perez

Our next Diamond in the Rough athlete is 2024 Jesuit High School (NOLA) QB Beau Perez. At 6’5, 220 pounds, Beau towers many of his fellow opponents, which can be a major advantage at the quarterback position. His 3.2 GPA shows that he is focused in the classroom as well. Beau attended our latest Elite Camp at Northshore High School, and he showed us the kind of quarterback he really is. His arm talent and height are the things that can really set him apart from his competition. He received an invite to the Gridiron Football All-American Bowl Game with his performance at the camp. For this coming season, it will be his second year as a starter, so he is looking to look better than he did last season and help the Blue Jays win by any means necessary. Our Beat Writer, Jace LeJeune had the chance to interview him, and he gave some very interesting insight on himself and this coming season for the Jesuit Blue Jays.
