Former Edmond Santa Fe athlete to continue football career at PSU

Special to The Sun

GOODWELL — Jalaun Parker’s commitment to Oklahoma Panhandle State University was a decision he knew would shape more than just his college career, but the foundation for his next 40 years. His determination to play football at the collegiate level led to his decision to join NCSA Athletic Recruiting, an exclusive recruiting network that provides student athletes with the opportunity and technology to be proactive in their recruiting process. Not only did Jalaun have the tools he needed for the recruiting process, NCSA also educated him on the steps he needed to take to achieve his goal.

Parker has demonstrated the true meaning of “student-athlete.” Earning a 3.30 GPA, Jalaun is a member of the National Society of High School Scholars, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and he volunteers at The Salvation Army. He plans to major in sports science at the university.

As a varsity athlete, Jalaun was named to the Honorable Mention All-Conference Team in 2011.

Parker’s self-motivation and trust in the recruiting process has rewarded him with the opportunity to play football as an Oklahoma Panhandle State University Aggie and earn a meaningful degree that will allow him to succeed in the future.
