Parker Saves Best for Last

By

Kyle Parker saved one of the best games of his career for his final road game with the Tigers.  Parker wwas 15-17 for 194 yards and two touchdowns before he left the game in the middle of the third quarter.

The performance by Kyle was the highest passing percentage in the ACC in eight years.

Kyle was relieved to get the sixth win and get bowl eligiible once again.

“It is definitely a relief.  Everyone expects to go to a bowl every year.  We did that obviously.  We didn’t have some of the things go the way we wanted, but going to a bowl game is exciting and we will have a chance to represent this team in a bowl game,” said Parker.

How does Kyle feel about Jamie Harper’s play the past few games?

“He is running hard.  I think the biggest thing is after the first half he just goes out there and continues to run hard all game.  He is really being a guy you can get the ball to and expect some good carries,” replied Parker.

The young receivers have come a long way this season.

“From the beginning of the year they are light years ahead.  They came in and did a good job of learning from their mistakes and continued to improve and continue to make plays,” said Parker.

How have the receivers improved the most?

“The biggest thing, and Jaron did it today, is getting verticle and making some plays.  That is something we have been missing, especially the past couple of weeks, but today Jaron did that and made a big play for our offense,” said Parker.
