Recruit Profile
Dedicated on the field and in the classroom balancing up to four sports each academic year with AP/Honors coursework- coachable, high lacrosse IQ, always working to be better

Athletics are very important to me. I began playing team sports as early as I began school, trying lacrosse for the first time in third grade. Within a year of picking up a stick, I managed to become a leading scorer in league play and secured a spot on a competitive local team. As soon as I had the opportunity to play travel lacrosse, I took it, and I worked alongside teammates to win several tournament championships. Although I loved lacrosse, I also continued to play other sports including football, basketball, club soccer, and track. Over the past three years, I have worked hard to become a leader on the high school lacrosse field as well as the football field and the track. I earned a spot at regional and state indoor track meets as a junior. My football coach selected me a leader and captain for the JV and varsity teams. I also made the varsity lacrosse team as a freshman, working my way to a consistent starting position in each game by junior year.

My lacrosse strength has been my ability to see the bigger picture. Scoring is important, and I would be fibbing if I said I did not enjoy it. One of the best coaches I have had thus far told me that assists are as important as goals, and I agree with him. My personal stats do no show that I am the leading team scorer, but I can confidently say that I am the man who moves the ball. I am the kid who provides stability and reliability in plays, but who can also rip a shot. I can outrun many, and I keep my head up to look for the best pass, the next play. I moved from midfield to LSM mid-season 2019 because my high school coach "needed an athlete to attack the ball". The game of lacrosse is bigger than one player. It is a game best played unselfishly.

I have used my time to mentor younger players in various sports while maintaining high academic standards. Volunteering for two local towns, I served as an assistant league soccer and basketball coach. I have further assisted in skills clinics for football and lacrosse. Volunteering is my way to pay forward the benefits of sports.

A fast, athletic midfielder who's great between the boxes, Parker is a tough, hard-nosed two-way player who thrives in ground ball situations.
