Bishop Moore has first 'Athlete of the Week' for season

Parker Boudreaux named after impressive first game


ORLANDO, Fla. – It was a sweet victory Friday Night. Bishop Moore recorded it's third straight win over Edgewater in the annual "Battle of College Park," a 35-7 blowout, started by Bishop Moore's big boys up front.

 "I always think the biggest strength has to be the offensive line for me," said Bishop Moore head coach Matt Hedrick, "Our offensive line, if it's not clicking, we'll never be any good and we gotta good group right now."

It was clicking, opening up gaping holes for Bishop Moore's speedy backfield. Bishop Moore's line has the ability to bulldoze and led by a 6 feet 5 inches high mountain of a senior, offensive guard Parker Boudreaux.

"We just got together as a family, played with all our heart, and just gave it all on the field," said Boudreaux after the game, "Beating our rivals three times in a row? There's no better feeling than that." 

Boudreaux is one of the best lineman in all of Florida and committed to play at Notre Dame next year. The way he announced his commitment to the Irish received a lot of attention. The sports website, Bleacher Report, approached Parker over the summer and filmed him pulling a 16,000 pound school bus, revealing the fighting Irish logo on the pavement underneath.

"It went pretty viral. I didn't know it was going to go that viral," said Parker, "It got some positives and negatives. It was pretty cool."

It was definitely not the average commitment. he's definitely not the average senior. Bishop Moore's Parker Boudreaux, the "6 Yard Line Athlete of the Week."
