Boylan's Perrone earns 400th career win

Rockford, Ill. (WIFR) In a coaching career that's spanned over two decades, Boylan Varsity Girls head basketball coach Paul Perrone has won NIC-10, Regional and Sectional titles with both Harlem and Boylan, and he's also won a whole lot of games in the process.

After a 77-44 defeat at home over Belvidere North on Tuesday, Perrone reached a major milestone in winning his 400th career victory.

"I've been blessed with great kids at Harlem and here at Boylan, and it's a credit to them really," said Perrone. "Coaching at Boylan is a dream. The kids are so great their work ethic is great, they play so hard so they really make it easy for a coach because they just get out and battle every night you don't have to beg them to work hard."
