Carey Parker, (far left)
Today we learned of San Antonio Central Catholic’s Carey Parker. He’s another big lineman at 6-6 and 290 pounds and he was second team all-state… in Texas!
Parker’s highlight reel is the most impressive video I’ve ever seen from an offensive lineman.
Parker appears to be the first ever San Antonio Central Catholic HS player to come to Columbia football. He may have played against rising junior Ryan Murphy, who played for Alamo Heights in San Antonio.
In all of Columbia history, only one or two football players have come out of San Antonio, but since Coach Greg Sigler took over that area as his recruiting region we’ve had three players out of that football-rich town in Murphy, Chase McCaleb ’10, and now Parker.
Parker and yesterday’s revelation Chris Proctor may ease the blow if reports of Maryland’s Joe Kopp de-committing are true. (I still have no confirmation on that).
I failed to mention that Proctor appears to be just the second Pine Crest School player to come to the Lions. The last, and only other one, was Walter Haynie ’89.
Remember, you can see all the documented high school feeder schools for Lion football over the decades on my LionFeeders Blog. I will add the members of the class of 2015 when they are officially named by the athletic department.
One player the football team is NOT getting is Denver area football and baseball standout Jordan Serena. Serena told the Denver Post he’s coming to Columbia to play baseball only.
Perhaps that’s a good move, he’s currently batting .539.
