Quarterback is certainly the most celebrated – and scrutinized – position in football, and even at the high school level requires a strong leader who can manage the expectations and help guide the team to success on offense. At Twin Cedars, junior signal-caller Brent Parker is again guiding the Sabers’ offense this season, and his head coach – Aaron Allspach – says he’s been impressed by what Parker has been able to do for the team both on and off the field.

“Brent started last year as a sophomore, and that’s tough to do – to come in and start at varsity quarterback as a sophomore. He had his ups and downs, but he’s taken everything in stride and he’s been a leader so far this season,” said Allspach. “He’s one of our captains and he was in the weight room this summer. He’s also a vocal leader, and I’m excited for his leadership on and off the field.”

Twin Cedars tries to bounce back from a Week Zero loss at Essex this past Saturday with a big rivalry match-up on Friday. The Sabers host Melcher-Dallas for the annual Marion County bragging rights on the gridiron.
