After becoming an outstanding football player at Beaufort High and being a second team All- American at Newberry College, Ron Parker recently completed his first year in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs where he played at both cornerback and safety positions. Parker started 15 of the 16 games and had 94 tackles and one interception.
Parker is headed back to Kansas City having just signed a new five-year contract with the Chiefs for $30 million which includes a base salary plus incentives for interceptions and post season play.
Many sports writers feel Parker’s play was critical to the success of one of the league’s best defenses last year and feel he will be a key element in how they do this coming season. We all wish Parker a successful and safe next couple of years and plan on watching a lot of him on Sunday’s. Go Chiefs!
