Chris Parcel, son of Jim and Michelle Parcel, is our Jet’s Pizza Male Athlete of the Week.
He is a senior at Page High School and a member of the varsity wrestling team. He is in the 170-pound weight class and has a record of 32-4. He also came in first place at the Maryville Invitational.
He said he started the sport because it looked like a lot of fun and he felt that he would be able to conquer his opponents.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete he said, “my coaches and my teammates inspire me to win for the team and pursue a state championship.” He also said he always aims to beat his best performance from the day before.
Coach Gray said of Parcel, “Chris strives to excel both athletically and academically. He leads by example and represents the Page wrestling program well.”
After graduating from PHS, Parcel plans to go to college to pursue a career as a physical therapist and continue wrestling.
