Recruit Profile
I'm a multi-sport athlete with quick hands, size, speed & overall athleticism. Powerful right-handed player that can step down and shoot on the run.

Coaches,
My name is Parker Dechant:

I am a multi-sport athlete with quick hands, size, speed and overall athleticism, a powerful right-handed player that can dodge the ally or set up as a sniper. I change direction quickly and play every shift like it is my last.

I have been playing Lacrosse since 2nd grade and love the game. I am a midfielder on the West Coast Starz 2022 National team and was the leading Freshman scorer for my HS Varsity team in Oregon on our quest to the state tournament.

I am a right-handed midfielder that uses both hands to pass, dodge and score. I have excellent field IQ and work hard at both ends of the field. Not only can I dodge the ally or set up outside as a sniper, but I play aggressive short stick defense and create turnovers. I am a coachable player who listens, learns and can apply what I have learned to the next shift.

I am studying and following the business path in High School, this means I am taking focused courses on Marketing, Business Law, Accounting and Management along with STEM and IB course. My goals is for these to prepare me for business school once in college. I am active in the community doing food drives for the Blanchet House in Portland and participating in the Make a Wish foundation fund raising activities. I give back to younger lacrosse players by participating in our youth clinics and as a referee for youth games and tournaments.

Parker is an elite athlete that impacts all aspects of the game. He is a valuable player in his versatility to compete on offense, defense, wings, and between the lines. He works hard, listens, learns, and has an amazing upside.

Parker is a great athlete in the midfield on both sides of the ball. Very coachable, solid game/space IQ and a lethal time and room shot. Big upside for Parker and he's putting in the work! Next step is taking being more aggressive as he grows into bigger roles.
