Travis Perry is considered by many scouting services to be one of the top 8th graders in the nation. Perry, a point guard, led Lyon County to a 21-10 record last season and has the Lyons off to a 16-9 start this season. He averaged 21 points as a 7th grader and is averaging 26 points this season, good for 4th in the state. Perry has an all-around game but what probably stands out the most is his superb ball-handling skills. His father, Ryan Perry, is the Lyons coach.
Travis Perry is not the first highly regarded player to come out of Lyon County. Ty Rogers scored 3,300 career points for the Lyons (good for 10th all time in state history) and went on to play for Western Kentucky. In 2008, his buzzer-beating 3-pointer lifted the Hilltoppers to a 101-99 win over Drake in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
