Overachiever.  Punches above his weight.  If there were a combine, his numbers would not jump off the sheet.  But numbers do not tell the whole story as Parker is an ideal example of what an athlete can do when they have the most important ingredient:  unabated determination.  The man never rests.  Parker has a broken hand?  He creates his own workouts, unwilling to stand and watch with the other "walking wounded.”  Tell him that his left hand is not as sharp as his right?  Relentlessly he works to improve catching and shooting with his left.  Parker does have several numbers that do jump out and they are the results of his absolute dedication to personal and team development.  No one can touch him in the distance running as he blows the rest of us away with his 5:30 minute miles due to his demanding offseason training.  He led the program in scoring in 2011 with 40 points.  And if we could quantify the outstanding leadership he has provided to us, captain Parker Brown would be off the charts.  He has the uncanny ability to lead his teammates with inspiration and without degrading others.  Parker will continue to start on attack, play the point in transition and guide the extra man offense…2011:  Led the Bears in scoring with 40 points (22 goals, 18 assists), seventh best in the Ivy League…Two-time Ivy League Player of the Week…Enjoyed four-goal games against Penn, Dartmouth and Quinnipiac…His 18 assists led the Brown team…Started 13 of 14 games…Picked-up 15 ground balls…Scored two goals vs. UMass and Princeton…Also had three assists against Quinnipiac for a seven point game…Led the attackmen with a shooting percentage of .400…2010: Enjoyed a break-out season for the Bears with 19 goals and 12 assists for 31 points…His 19 goals ranked fourth on the Brown team, and is third among returning players…Scored a career best three goals against Hartford, Yale and Cornell…Ranked 29th nationally with a shooting percentage of .422…Added two assists against Hartford for five points…Started 13 of 14 games for the Bears…Picked-up a career best four assists against Dartmouth…Netted two goals against St. Joseph’s, Harvard, and Penn…2009: Saw action in 12 games for the Bears…Took two shots vs. Vermont and Quinnipiac, and one against Providence…Secondary School Background: A graduate of University High School where he lettered in lacrosse (4), soccer (2), and cross country (2)…Two-time US Lacrosse All-American selection…First team All-League…Two-time team captain…Holds the school record for most career points and the unofficial state record with 532 career points…Led the league in scoring for four straight years…Led his team to four straight Golden Gate Lacrosse League championships…First team All-league and First team All-section for two years in cross country…Ran to an individual league and section championship for two years…First team All-league in soccer…Editor-in-chief of school newspaper…Personal: The son of Cabot and Mollie Brown…Has younger siblings Harrison, Madeline, and Stuart…Public Policy and American Institution concentrator.
