Remembering Phillip Perry
Wed, 03 Aug 2011 03:50:04 GMT —
The Missouri Highway Patrol is investigating an accident that killed 19-year old Hannibal native Phillip Perry.
While wrestling for Hannibal, he recorded three top-three finishes in the state wrestling tournament, including a second place showing his senior year.
He also earned All-American honors, while being named an All-Stater three years running.
As the Hannibal wrestling program gained momentum in the late 2000s, Perry was a driving force behind the success seen by many, and has helped the team finish sixth or higher in the state all four years of his career.
