PIKEVILLE – Magoffin County High School graduate Nathan Perkins has concluded his redshirt junior season with the University of Pikeville football program.

Perkins (6-3, 310), an offensive lineman, delivers on both the field and in the classroom at the next level. The Magoffin County graduate has earned multiple academic accolades during his collegiate career.

On the gridiron, Pikeville exited the 2021 college football season 4-6. The Bears, under the direction of new head coach Corey Fipps, notched wins over Bluefield, Webber International, Cumberland and Thomas More. Pikeville, which competes in the Mid-South Conference (MSC), suffered losses to St. Thomas, Georgetown, Campbellsville, Bethel, Lindsey Wilson and Cumberlands.

The Bears’ 2022 schedule will be finalized and released at a later date.

Perkins is preparing to be back on the field with his teammates for spring practice in 2022.
