Line drives

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER CITY, La -

In football, the so-called "skill" position players may get most of the attention, but everyone who puts on pads knows that games are usually won and lost in the trenches.  At Parkway High School, we know about quarterback Brandon Harris, in part, because he is given time to show his skills.   Parkway's big guys up front are our Rountree Ford Athletes of the Week.

The expectations have never been higher for the Parkway Panthers.  With LSU commit Brandon Harris running the show, Parkway's offense is considered among the best in the state.  While the spotlight has been shining around Harris and the rest of the Parkway playmakers, Folks around Panther camp say it's the unsung heroes that fuel their offensive machine.  Coach David feaster says, "All of our guys, all of our skill people know that they're nothing without their offensive line."

Behind their big offensive line Harris and the Panthers have lit up the scoreboard.  In just two games Parkway has racked up 117 points.  But as the season rolls on the target on their back will only get bigger.  Coach Feaster says he's got the right guys for the job, "Our offensive line is a bunch of seniors, a bunch of veterans and some hard playing guys.  I'm real proud of them. "

Center Terrell Grimsley adds, "We're like a brotherhood as coach calls us.  We sit by each other on the sideline, we go out to eat every Thursday, it's special.  We all love each other and we grind hard in practice."

If Parkway's line keeps making life easy for the rest of the offense, the big boys up front will have everyone in Pantherland singing their praises.  Parkway travels to Monroe to play Bastrop Friday night.
