Arkansas Activities Association recently added Mount Ida senior Chandler Perkins to the AAA record books thanks to his stellar performance in the October 7 game against Lafayette County.
The AAA announced Tuesday, February 7, that Chandler Perkins was added to their record book after his 10 point performance against Lafayette County was acknowledged as the second highest mark in state history. His 10 extra points ties him with Savana Melton of North Little Rock who kicked 10 PATs in 2015 and 2016. The record is held by Jose Hernandez of Nashville who kicked 13 in 2016.
Perkins provided a sense of security on point after attempts this past season, connecting on 50 of 53 attempts. He kicked 10 of 10 in the game against Lafayette County in which the Lions won 72-34. He kicked seven of seven the following week in a 49-14 victory over Murfreesboro and eight of eight October 28 against Foreman.
The Lafayette County game has produced multiple records with the 72 point total believed to be the highest point total for a Mount Ida football team. Damarion Dedner of Lafayette County was also added to the record book this year after amassing 322 receiving yards in said game. This was good enough to be tied for sixth best all time.
