On Thursday, the South Medford senior linebacker was named the Defensive Player of the Year for Class 6, as voted on by the state’s coaches.

The honor comes a few days after Parnell received a scholarship offer from Western Oregon and after he was selected to the all-state first teams on both offense and defense.

His coach, Bill Singler, took home some hardware as well.

Singler was named the 6A Co-Coach of the year along with Joe Bushman of state-champion Clackamas.

Singler led the Panthers to their first ever state title game at the start of December. It was also his first as a head coach.
