@JD Brooks.......not likely. BYU has some really good national recruits coming
in over the next few years and they got the best in-state recruits and shooting
guards in Emery and Haws. Take nothing away from the Parsons kid. He had a
great career, posted some outstanding numbers and should be a very good player
at SUU. He just wasn't the best in this state and he struggled along with
his team against top competition last November in the Great Western shootout in
Orem. Remember that tournament....0-3 for SS and less than average stats
against some big time teams.
Maybe BYU will recruit him after his mission
Winked Winked, did grandpa tell you that he didn't have this 3 point in the
past? I am sure grandpa was proud of you. Not sure if Dave Rose knew about you
but I think you should fit in at BYU. Good luck at the final 4 and have fun and
enjoy your time at SUU.
He was recruited by several D1 schools but chose SUU.
I bet a nickle Race is related to Lynn Parsons who I enjoyed watching many years
ago at BYU. Lynn was also from the southern part of Utah.I followed
Race this year and hoped BYU would give him a chance! The Cougars need this
young man to be a "designated shooter" and zone buster.
Congrats Race. The record that you broke that your ol grandpa had is an
incredible feat. I must tell you, I was fortunate enough to play for Coach
Parsons. I love the man, he instilled so much confidence in all of us. I was so
sad when he left Beaver after my sophomore year. He had some deep range also. I
will be voting for you in your competition. Good luck .
Congrats Race - from a Richfield alum that went to school when your parents were
at SS. They must be proud.
Well done Race. Hard work can pay off for anyone. Even if you attend a smaller
school, or one that is not named Lone Peak.
Congratulations Race. The article is very well written and one that needs to be
written. So often small schools and their students/athletes are overlooked and
their accomplishments under-appreciated. Race is a fantastic young man and a
great basketball player. He represents so well the type of youngsters that
compete in Utah high school athletics. In today's society of me-me-me and
the sense of entitlement that we see so often among spoiled college and pro
athletes, it is refreshing to read about a young man with the right qualities,
the sound understanding and proper judgement that accompanies a young man that
has been raised to respect others and to be responsible and accountable for his
own actions. Race is and has been a remarkable example to all of us that know
him. A humble, unassuming person that is a Warrior on the court. Good luck to
Race this weekend but also best of luck in your career at Southern Utah
University. We are all so proud of you!
Congrats! Way to represent the state of Utah
