Korey Parrott charges ahead for Atlantic.

Seventy-six big yards led the rushing game for Atlantic last week.

Those were big yards racked up by Atlantic senior Korey Parrott, who had a breakout performance against Carroll Kuemper Catholic. After a backup role last year, the Trojan stalwart cracked the starting lineup this year and came through with key gains on Trojan drives.

In the fourth quarter, his 19-yard slicer through the right side of the Kuemper defense for a touchdown put the game away and allowed his team to secure a 21-10 victory.

For those efforts, Parrott is the News-Telegraph’s Athlete of the Week. Congratulations, Korey!
