Dream come true

Campbell walk-on Casey Perrin says he had no idea what to expect when coach Kevin McGeehan recently called him up in front of the team inside their locker room. But Perrin will surely never forget what happened next.

McGeehan, his arm around Perrin, began complimenting the senior, praising him for his work ethic. Then, he gave Perrin some truly incredible news. Campbell was awarding the guard a scholarship.

What followed was a scene that will truly tug at your heartstrings, as Perrin's teammates swarmed him and he understandably got emotional after the life-changing news.

Perrin scored just nine points during his first three seasons with Campbell. But that hasn't stopped Perrin from making a big impact on the program, which is why McGeehan rewarded him with a scholarship.

"As we've tried to build our program, part of the focus and direction is building around character," McGeehan said. "There's not a better example of that than Casey -- who he is as a person, the way he conducts himself with peers and adults, his work ethic in the classroom and on the court. He's just an awesome kid. Easy decision from our standpoint."
