Pittsburgh Central Catholic QB Perry Hills receiving D-1 attention
Written by: Josh Funk on Sunday, April 10th, 2011
Ever since he stepped on the field haflway through the 2009 season, Pittsburgh Central Catholic field general Perry Hills has proven to be a winner.
Division-1 programs are taking notice of Hills’ ability.
The 6’3, 200-pound senior-to-be for Central Catholic has attracted interest, but no verbal offers, from five Division-1 programs, according to national recruiting services Scout.com and Rivals.com. Interested parties include Minnesota, Michigan State, North Carolina State, Pitt and Purdue.
Hills assumed the reins of Central Catholic’s pro-I offense halfway through the 2009 season with the Vikings stuck at 3-2 overall. He registered a five-game winning streak, leading the Vikings to the WPIAL AAAA quarterfinals opposite Woodland Hills, connecting on 33-of-63 passes (52.3 percent) for 510 yards and six touchdowns. Hills was even better as a junior, throwing for 1,582 yards and 10 touchdowns while completing 83-of-154 passes (53.8 percent), leading PCC to an 11-1 overall record and berth in the WPIAL AAAA semifinals.
For his career, Hills has thrown for 2,092 yards and 16 touchdowns. He has an outside chance at reaching the 4,000-yard passing mark for his career, which would make him the second 4,000-yard passer in Central Catholic history (Bob Tudi threw for 4,885 yards from 1999-2001).
Hills owns a career varsity starting record of 16-2. With Hills at the helm, Central Catholic has averaged 29.9 points per game over its last 18 games.
