Parrish

Before he heads off to play for Clemson, Fairview's Brandon Parrish has hauled in another prestigious honor. 

The Yellow Jacket great has been named the Gatorade Tennessee Boys Soccer Player of the Year for the second-straight year. 

The release says he is a 2019-20 Allstate All-America honoree. He didn't get a senior season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but he had 68 goals and 40 assists in his high school career. 

“Brandon’s movement off the ball is fantastic,” said Diego Figueroa, Parrish’s club coach with Nashville SC. “Knowing that he was constantly getting pressed, he would do a fantastic job of creating space for others.”

He is one of the recent WillCo players to be recognized by Gatorade for the honor, with Centennial alum Johnny Heckman (2014-15) and Franklin alum Brad Ross (2013-14). 

Independence's Robert Hassell won the honor for baseball for a second year last month.
