A three-time First Team All-State selection, Pereira batted .750 (15-for-20) with five doubles, four home runs and 12 RBI in five state tournament games.

THE PRAISE

“Levi Pereira’s ability to perform under pressure is spectacular,” said Coeur d’Alene head coach Nick Rook. “His teammates consistently look to him for leadership in crucial situations. His intangibles as a player are off the charts and his savvy for the game is uncoachable. I would rate his overall skills among the top five percent of the players I have coached at both the high school and collegiate levels.”
