How Duke landed the Family Plumlee

The Duke Blue Devils were glad when they successfully recruited Mason Plumlee (PF/C, 6’11”, 2009), who was playing prep basketball in Arden, NC. However, they were able to also secure his older brother Miles after the elder Plumlee decided not to attend his original commitment at Stanford.

The story of how the move to NC helped the Blue Devils land the brothers is in this article by the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette:

“We have to pinch ourselves every now and then,” the boys’ father, Perky Plumlee, said Thursday. “They both had to work hard, and they have had to overcome some things. It makes us feel proud and blessed.”

I can’t help but wonder if Perky is Mr. Plumlee’s real name or a nickname. Can someone in the Duke fold let me know?
