Derek Parish

One of my favorite plays of the 2022 season. Still enjoying it.

Great catch and run by Nelson

Tebow should’ve done that, too… :grin:

TE Derek Parish! Looks like Derick may be the Swiss Army Knife of the NFL.

Might as well try every position. Travis Kelce was a quarterback before becoming a Tight End.

He has really been working on his catching abilities. That is pretty foreign to him, never played a position that required that. He will run up and down the field with his hair on fire if they ask him to. :rofl:

I would too; NFL minimum salary for 2023 is $750,000.00 a year. The practice squad minimum is $11,500 per week, that’s $207,000.00 per season.

He is so proud of this award. More than any other he has ever won because of his brother and dad. He was very emotional

Any award named after Pat Tilman has to be a damn fine award…

Congrats to Derek and to his mama!

Ha… that’s exactly what I was thinking that due to his Dad & Brother’s Service this hits a little different.

Very happy for the Parish family. We are lucky to have DP represent UH.

I assume the Pat Tillman award meams more to Derek with his twin being in the rangers. He is an excellent choice for it.

funny, Derrick maybe a new hybrid in the NFL: RB, FB, TE and DE. The NFL has used players in multiple spots but this would be unprecedented.
