East Palestine’s Parker Sherry is undeniably known for what his contributions are on the football field, and in the community.  However, for his grand finale as a Bulldog, Sherry had decided to lace up his sneakers and return to the hardwood his senior season.


Sherry has been running point for the Bulldogs this year and has brought his aggressiveness into the gym as well.  Not much changes in regards to his game and that includes his jersey number.  Opponents know that when they come into the Dog Pound exactly who is going to be wearing number 10.

YSN’s DJ Yokley caught up with Parker before the holidays to discuss the differences and similarities of the sports he excels in.  Sherry is the subject of this week’s East Palestine Player Profile: BACK TO THE FUTURE.



For his entire life, East Palestine’s Parker Sherry has been climbing.  What started out as hay bails, trees, and hills that were being climbed turned into depth charts, record books, and now prospect stock.

Sherry has a gratefulness about him that is very contagious, but don’t misinterpret his genuine love for the game of football for weakness.  Sherry has long ago been bitten by the competitive bug and takes the same winning mentality from the gridiron to game night with his family.

When you see the brown and white jersey running around on Friday nights, it’s comparable to watching a video game.  He can beat you with his arm, his legs, and if that doesn’t do the trick: his pure determination will overwhelm anything you have left in the tank.

Most Easily Stated: Parker Sherry is a winner.

His character is never in question as he is just as involved in the community as he is in the huddle.  He is soon to be awarded the Valedictorian of East Palestine’s graduating class.  His leadership among his peers both in the classroom, as well as between the lines sets him apart from his numbers alone.

Oh, that’s right.  The numbers.  Take a look at these:


2018 :

Passing: 131/232 for 1,852 yards/21 TD’s

Rushing: 1,021 Rushing Yards/12 TD’s


Passing: 510/877 for 7,374 yards/77 TD’s

Rushing: 4,335 Rushing Yards/55 TD’s

11,709 Total Yards and 132 TD’s

All those yards, and not to mention the list of his achievements that now include the Wendy’s High School Heisman Award for Ohio, and National Max Preps Athlete of the Month (Video Below.)

We sat down with Parker and discussed the importance of his leadership, character, and what he does on and off the field, as well as what the next hill is he will attempt to climb.  Our Feature Story of CONTINUE THE CLIMB: PARKER SHERRY is proudly sponsored by Coaches Tribune.






It’s no surprise that there’s a buzz in Bulldogville over the success the football team has had the past few years.  East Palestine is pushing to get back to their winning ways in 2018, and after a tough open to their EOAC schedule, they look to right the ship against Wellsville.

Leading the Brown and White is a young man whose life revolved around football since he could pick one up.  EP’s Parker Sherry has been patiently waiting for his time to shine, and that time is now upon us.  Sherry is a leader and a magician on the field, but what’s even more impressive is the work he does outside the lines and in the community.

Parker prides himself on helping the younger generation of Bulldogs grow, and be excited about the game of football, and all it has to offer.

Before he makes any major announcements about his future, Sherry wants to focus in on the present.  A young man whose middle name speaks volumes in the reflection of his character, and work ethic.
