Perkins was selected in the first round of the 2029 draft and was a member of the Mustangs organization for 17 years. "I'd like to thank the Mustangs front office for allowing me to have such a great career here and feel incredibly blessed to have been given such an opportunity," Perkins told the crowd while fighting back tears. Perkins holds franchise records in nearly every offensive category and was a member of the 2035 league championship winning team. "There was no question about if we would induct Irving into the Hall of Fame, just the matter of when he felt ready to move on to the next chapter in his life, and we wish him nothing but the best going forward" said team owner envican during the ceremony.
