At 6 foot 4, 280 pounds, you can’t miss Stratford’s Hudson Perroni (Puh-roni) on the football field. He’s an immovable object and one of the top recruited offensive linemen in the Houston area. An offensive coordinator’s dream. However, when the coach’s heard about Hudson’s other passions, they were a little taken aback.
Perroni got involved in theater in the 5th grade when he watched his sister in a production. Then he picked up tap dancing as a freshman in order to land a role in a school play. It’s now a huge part of his life and Hudson’s found that his theater has helped him on the gridiron as well.
Athletics and drama are often seen as running in two different crowds. Perroni feels his dedication to each has, at least at Stratford, helped bridge that gap.
Hudson also says that being dedicated to both football and theater has helped him in time management. He’s also on track to be Stratford’s valedictorian, so to say there is a lot on the young man’s plate would be an understatement.
