Kendall Perpall has piloted the Providence men’s basketball team the past four years. Referred to as “Mr. Fourth Quarter,” the Tulsa, Oklahoma point guard’s athleticism, sharp shooting and shot calling have stood out to both teammates and fans alike. “I love playing at home, in front of Providence—the greatest supporters ever,” he says.

Set to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in General Studies with a minor in Psychology, Perpall remembers his 37-point game earlier this season against Stone Child College—a stand-out showing that also saw him score the winner—as his most memorable performance as a Providence Pilot.

Off the court, he cites the campus community as something he’ll look back on fondly after graduating.

“Providence is a friendly community,” he says. “The conversations I’ve had with friends, the numerous dinners I’ve shared with Yvonne Hill (a Providence staff member) and being a part of community events have all contributed to a great student experience.”

Perpall also remarks that the school’s small class sizes helped him connect with Providence faculty. “You can actually approach professors with any problems, academically or spiritually,” and they will listen and help you.”

After graduation Perpall plans to take a vacation in the Bahamas, marry his long-time girlfriend and one day return to Providence as a seminary student.
