#71 Chris Parrish
|HOMETOWN||Grand Forks, N.D. (Central HS)|
Played an important role on a maturing offensive line that set the tone for an offensive unit that ranked fourth in the NSIC in scoring, averaging 33.5 points per contest, was fourth in rushing offensive gaining 189.4 yards per game and led the league in third down conversions, converting 79-of-158 (50 percent)... The BSU offensive unit led the NSIC in time of possession dominating the line of scrimmage for nearly 34:00 per game... They cleared room for eight 100-yard rushing games, including six by Dustin Kroeplin, a redshirt freshman that came just 48 yards shy of clearing the 1,000-yard plateau... The line also protected quarterback Derek Edholm who lead the league in pass efficiency completing over 61 percent of his passes, for nearly 1,700 yards, while throwing 25 touchdowns.
2008 (So): Played in seven games as a reserve lineman in 2008.
Was part of a offensive front that paved the way for the BSU rushing attack to average nearly 100-yards per game in 2008... The unit protected Derek Edholm, who completed a BSU single-season best 65.2-percent of his pas attempts, setting a BSU mark with 193 completions... The young offensive line matured together down the stretch blocking for a ground game that posted over 150 yards in three of the last four games as the Beavers closed out the season winning three of four.
2007 (Fr): Did not appear in any games.
Personal: Born Oct. 28, 1987... Chris Duane Parrish is the son of Deb Parrish.
