High school football: Parkway names All-Decade team

2150

In the last decade, Parkway won more games than any school in Bossier Parish.

The Panthers went 88-31 on the field from 2010-2019. From 2010-16, Parkway was 74-14.

Needless to say, Parkway had some of the top athletes in the parish at just about every position during the decade. That made picking the All-Decade team a major challenge.

“When we got to the defensive backs, all four guys played college football,” Parkway head coach Coy Brotherton said. “There are some guys that played college football that didn’t make the team. That’s the crazy thing.”

Parkway released the team on Facebook and Twitter starting April 21 with the MVP and ending Thursday with the final two “athletes.”

Brotherton was named Parkway’s head coach late last year. But he coached against the Panthers as the offensive coordinator at Captain Shreve from 2015-2019.

With the help of local prep historian Lee Hiller, Brotherton compiled a list of players who were selected All-City and All-District. 

“I sent it to some guys who have coached at Parkway in the past, some alumni and some parents that are involved in that community, South Bossier,” Brotherton said. “I got all of them involved. I think we had about 24 people voting. It was actually pretty fun to send that out and get some of the responses every day.”

The MVP was Brandon Harris, the starting quarterback in 2012 and 2013. In 2013, Harris led Parkway to a 13-1 record. The Panthers became the first Bossier Parish school to play for a state championship since Haughton in 1978 and the first ever to play for one in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Parkway was 25-3 during Harris’ two years. In 2013, he passed for a school-record 3,518 yards and 37 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,153 yards and 17 TDs.

Harris accounted for 94 touchdowns passing and rushing in 2012 and 2013. He passed for 6,286 yards. 

Harris went on to play at LSU and North Carolina.
