According to an article of out SportsDay in Dallas, “Parker began his career at Texas Lutheran before transferring to Texas Tech and walking on. He made a major mark on the Red Raiders’ improved defense with 42 total tackles and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.”

“He also led Texas Tech in interceptions in four. He intercepted Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger in the fourth quarter of Texas Tech’s 27-23 win over the Longhorns.”

Hard work pays off, congratulations to Justus.
