Jeremiah Parker: 5’8 170 Tailback
Looking at the tape of Parker, you can immediately see the breakaway speed that he possess. He just looks like he runs at a different gear than other guys. Explodes out of the backfield as soon as the ball is snapped. He is a load to bring down, despite his stature, dragging several guys to fight for extra yards. Has the ability to cut on a dime with hard, quick cuts. Rarely goes down at the first point of contact. In an open field situation, guys better bring their A-game, because Parker will put a quick move on to get to the next level. Excellent blocker downfield that will climb to the safety and flatten him. A very powerful, strong runner of the football. Runs hard through the initial tackler, no matter the size difference he encounters.
We recently wrote an article on Parker, which can be found here. Parker is a great football player and we see a huge upside in what he can do. Do to limited carries last year with a nagging ankle injury, Parker only played a few games. When he is on the field, he is a dynamic player and does big things! We are excited to see how his senior season goes, as he looks to be one of the main tailbacks carrying the load in the 2021 season.
