QB Perish’s record game earns him MVFC honor

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State quarterback Mike Perish has been named the Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Week bcause of his performance as part of the Sycamores’ 70-7 victory over Quincy on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Perish completed 23 of 26 passes for 379 yards with four touchdowns and also ran for a score, as the Sycamores reached the 70-point mark for the first time since 1925.

Perish’s 379 passing yards is the fourth-best in a single game in school history and was part of a school-record 433 passing yards. His completion percentage of 88.4 percent is likewise a school record, topping Ronnie Fouch’s 88.2-percent performance versus Quincy in 2010.

Perish hit Demory Lawshe on a 78-yard scoring strike in the first quarter to stake ISU to a 7-0 lead before he also threw touchdown passes of 2, 24 and 5 yards before leaving the contest early in the third quarter with the Sycamores ahead, 56-0.

His 1-yard touchdown run at the start of the second quarter gave him a part of five of the school-record 10 touchdowns on the day.

Perish found 12 different receivers over the course of the contest, and his 78-yard pass to Lawshe is both the longest completion of his career and the longest TD pass of his career.

Perish is the first Sycamore quarterback to throw for four touchdowns in a game since Fouch had four against Youngstown State in 2010.

Missouri State running back Vernon Scott shared MVFC Offensive Player of the Week honors with Perish following his performance in a 41-38 defeat at the hands of Murray State.

The Sycamores are idle this week and return to action Sept. 28, when they travel to Tennessee Tech of the Ohio Valley Conference for the final nonconference game of the season. Kickoff from Cookeville, Tenn. for that game is at 8 p.m.

  • Andy Amey: Just a small trip to talk about this time

    To paraphrase Carl Spackler, the heavy stuff’s not going to come for quite awhile. So while it’s true that I’m back from a week’s vacation, it’s not time — yet — for the big vacation column. Trips to Noblesville, Brunswick and Reelsville, while providing some nice family time, don’t really have the cachet to fill newspaper space.
