Jaylin Parnell named GNAC Player of the Week
PORTLAND — Sophomore linebacker Jaylin Parnell put together another strong performance this past week against Simon Fraser and has been named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Jaylin Parnell was in the backfield throughout the game against Simon Fraser as he helped pace a defense that forced four turnovers in WOU’s win over the Clan. Parnell had a pair of sacks for a loss of 21 yards, with one of his sacks also turning into a strip-sack in which WOU picked up the fumble and returned for a touchdown. In addition, he had six solo tackles.
Parnell is currently second on the team in total tackles (54), leads the team in solo tackles (36), tackles for loss (8.5) and is tied for the team lead in sacks (4.5). He’s also added an interception, a pass broken up and a forced fumble in starting all nine games this season.
WOU returns home for the next two weeks as they play Azusa Pacific this Saturday starting at 1:05 p.m. They will then close the regular season the following Saturday, Nov. 16 against Eastern New Mexico with kickoff also set for 1:05 p.m.
