Parker picks up Player of the Week honors
Pete Parker, a 2004 graduate of Los Alamos High School, was recently named the Lone Star Conference South Division Player of the Week.
Parker, a senior at Angelo State University (San Angelo, Texas), was named the top defensive player in the conference’s southern division for his performance in the Sept. 26 game against Midwestern State.
In that contest, Parker finished with nine tackles and two sacks, leading Angelo State’s Rams to a 20-17 upset victory. Parker was credited with 2-1/2 tackles for loss — 14 yards total — contributing in a big way to a defense that held Midwestern to just 47 rushing yards.
The Rams were recently voted into the top 25 AFCA Division II poll, taking the 23rd spot in the Oct. 5 poll. Wins over then-17th ranked Midwestern and a 47-23 win over Eastern New Mexico at Portales contributed to their ranking.
Angelo State garnered points in that poll this season for the first time since 2005.
Parker is a three-time letter winner at Angelo State. He is listed at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds. He played at the safety spot until 2007, when he was converted to linebacker and started all 11 of Angelo State’s games at linebacker in 2008.
Parker is studying kinesiology at Angelo State with a minor in biology and psychology.
