Prep Sports Scouting is your site for everything prep sports related. You’ll find in-depth feature stories, game film and analysis about all prep sports including football, basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, softball and more.

The site is all about the athletes no matter how many offers they have, they all deserve their own stories.

Jake Perper has eight plus years of experience covering and writing about sports at all levels (prep, college and pro) and he’s been scouting talent in the Florida area the entire time. He currently serves as a high school sports reporter for the Tampa Bay Times and scout for PrepHoops.com.

He has reported for NFL.com, Bleacher Report, DeBartolo Sports, About Sports, TampaSpartans.com, The Tampa Tribune and The Naples Daily News.

Since Perper is based in Florida most of the scouting will be done there, but it won’t be limited to just that area. If you want to know more about Perper, check out his Linkedin profile or view his resume here.
