He transferred to Helix after a very successful junior season at Bishop’s of La Jolla. Petry caught 68 passes for 1,204 yards and 14 touchdowns and emerged as one of the top receivers in San Diego. He and Notre Dame signee Tyler BuchnerTylerBuchner6'2" | QBHelix | 2021StateCA were one of the top quarterback and receiver duos in the state.

He is one of five California players in Penn’s 2021 recruiting class, including San Diego Section quarterback Aidan Sayin (Carlsbad).
