Ali Berkey sits down with Men’s Crew Coach Brian Perkins. Coach Perkins rowed for Temple and was captain of the team during his senior year, coached at the high school level before becoming an assistant coach at Temple, and then took over when Dr. Gavin White retired in 2016. He elaborates on how he started crew, his transition to head coach, how the team is doing this season, and more. Student-athletes Sebastian Devereaux and Nicholas Carbonaro talk about when they started rowing, what it’s like to be on the team, and how they balance sports and academics.
Temple Athletics takes a closer look at the many different sports played by Temple students through interviews with coaches and student-athletes.
