Parker Henry’s long football journey finally arrived in the Washington State starting lineup.
The Skyview graduate who rushed for 2,100 yards as a senior began his college career as a walk-on in the Palouse, where he switched to linebacker. His hard work was rewarded at the end of last season as the redshirt junior was given a scholarship.
“Parker works very hard, he is tough and a real hard-nosed,” Leach said at the time.
In Saturday’s 31-14 win over Wyoming, Henry played most of the game at Nickel with the starting unit. He recorded a career high six tackles, including one for a six-yard loss.
Oregon State redshirt freshman Drew Clarkson (Camas) also made his first start. He played left guard against San Jose State.
