MEAC Offensive Lineman of the Year
The MEAC’s top offensive lineman three straight seasons, Parker set the tone for an A&T offensive line that helped produce 5,122 yards of offense in a 12-0 season – the first team in MEAC history to finish unbeaten. A&T led the MEAC in rushing in three of Parker’s four seasons, also giving up the league’s fewest sacks in 2016 and ’17. Started all 48 games of his career at left tackle, earning All-America honors from STATS as a junior. Never beaten for a sack and flagged for just five penalties in his career. Received no scholarship offers from FBS schools, selecting North Carolina A&T over N.C. Central and Winston-Salem State. Has wing span of 107 ½ inches, with bench press of 360 pounds and squat of 510.
