In two full seasons (plus two more games) as starter, Austin Parker has more than thrived as East Hall's starting signal caller, throwing for 5,724 yards and 58 touchdowns, while leading an offense that is averaging 34.2 points per game under his guidance.

And Parker is already off to a red-hot start for the 2017 season connecting on nine touchdown passes and helping the Vikings to 114 points -- in just two games.

Just like last week's Year of the Quarterback standout (Bailey Fisher), Parker is not just a talent, he is also a team leader and the type of player that has torched opposing defenses for years.

He's also a standout that high school coaches believe should be drawing more collegiate attention. Yet Parker is not so concerned about that at the moment; he's focused on helping the Vikings to continue their explosive ways.
