Phoenix Brophy senior offensive lineman Will Perrott, an Ahwatukee Foothills resident, will continue his playing career at Duke University.

Perrott, who is 6-foot-2 and 250 pounds, was the starting left guard for the Broncos, who finished the season 6-6 after falling to Mountain Pointe in the Class 5A Division I state quarterfinals.

He chose Duke over Holy Cross, Penn, Princeton and the University of San Diego.

"He was a late bloomer," his father, Rich said. "He went from 135 pounds to 265 in a year and a half. He put a lot of time in and finally grew into his body."
