Breshad Perriman is the son of former NFL wideout Brett Perriman. The elder Perriman spent 10 years in the NFL, with the majority of those seasons as a member of the Detroit Lions. He caught 525 passes for 6,589 yards and 30 touchdowns.

The younger Perriman is following in his father's footsteps. He came into the game as the Knights' leading receiver and caught five passes for 60 yards before leaving Saturday's game against the Cougars.
