Parker is a tailback for the Bobcats, and he is looking to make a splash in his senior campaign running the football.
While Parker stands at 5’8, 170 pounds, do not let his size fool you, he can play! In only three games played, Parker rushed for 96 yards, in a backfield that saw 11 different players get carries on the year.
“I feel like my junior season went well,” Parker said. “It did not end the way that we expected it to, but we played out hearts out all season. I got an ankle injury early in the season, which kept me out of a few games. I feel stronger and ready to prove myself in my senior season.”
Parker has the measurables that you like to see, as he has a 450 pound squat max, which is well over double his weight. He also runs a 4.5 in the forty-yard-dash, has a max bench press of 230 pounds, and has a broad jump of 9’8!
Besides his obvious abilities and his speed and strength on and off the field, Parker knows that he has to do extra things to set himself apart from other players.
“As a player, I go above and beyond what is asked of me,” Parker said. “I am always willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. I am a very coachable player, and I am also a team player. I am very fast and agile, and I also am an extremely hard-worker.”
Wow! Sounds like the team that lands Parker at the collegiate level will certainly be getting a quality player!
In the classroom is where Parker could likely be the most impressive of all, as he currently holds a 3.34 GPA, which is more than enough to qualify him for several quality programs at the next level.
We feel as though Parker will be a great asset to any team, and he will also be a kid that coaches will not have to worry about being academically ineligible! We look forward to seeing how his senior year goes!
