"Stacking Those Blocks": Iron QB Luis Perez Recaps Day 6 of Camp

January 10, 2019 - Alliance of American Football (AAF) - Birmingham Iron News Release

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Luis Perez, the Birmingham Iron's first selection in The Alliance of American Football's 'Protect or Pick' Quarterback Draft, has shown leadership and pin-point passing through six days of training camp. During the Iron's 7-on-7 session, Perez dropped in multiple dimes over the outstretched hands of defenders, receiving applause and high-fives from teammates.

Below is the transcript of Perez talking with Iron team reporter Marq Burnett following Day 6 of training camp.

On his perspective of where the team stands six days into training camp...

"As a team, I think we're doing a very good job. We're stacking those blocks, getting better every single day. Not making the same mistake twice is the end goal. Just getting better, installing all these plays and studying them. Right now we're all in a learning phase, and I think we're doing a good job."

On the chemistry between the quarterbacks and wide receivers...

"It's getting there. It's going to take a while. It won't come over night; it'll come with time. Come February 10th, we should be there."

On his level of confidence, especially in 7-on-7 drills...

"Man, I have a lot of good players around me. We have a lot of great receivers, great offensive line and a great running back. It takes a team. Not one player can do it by himself. I'm very fortunate to be with this kind of team where we have great players. I'm just here to win some football games."

On the experience and chemistry in the Iron quarterback room...

"It's been great. I always say, 'Iron sharpens iron'. I know it's cliche, but we have to get each other better. No matter the competition, we have to get each better, improve and go out there and execute what (Offensive Coordinator/QB) Coach (Steve Logan) wants."
