Newberry College safety Ron Parker has earned his fourth Preseason All-American honor prior to the 2010 season, as the defending South Atlantic Conference Defensive Player of the Year has been named to the D2Football.com Preseason All-American first team today.
Parker, a native of St. Helena Island, S.C., was also named to the Lindy’s, Sporting News and Consensus Draft Services Preseason All-American first teams earlier this summer.
Parker was named a first team All-American by Don Hansen’s Football Gazette and a second team All-American by DAKTRONICS and D2Football.com. He was a first team all-Super Region Two selection by DAKTRONICS and was a first team all-South Atlantic Conference player. He was named an all-South Carolina player by The State newspaper and the Orangeburg Touchdown Club.
Newberry’s season begins on September 4, when the Wolves welcome Livingstone College to Setzler Field for a 6:30 p.m. kickoff.
