Parton selected to PSFCA All-Star Game
Chad Parton continues to add his name to the list of Salisbury firsts after a tremendous high school career.
The Falcon senior was recently named to the PSFCA (Pennsylvania Scholastic Football Coaches Association) East/West Class 1A-3A All-Star Game, the first Salisbury player to ever garner the recognition. It’s also the first time the PSFCA will have two East/West games - one for classifications 1A through 3A, and the other classes 4A through 6A.
“It’s definitely an honor to be selected,” Parton said. “There are a lot of good players that came out of Salisbury. So to be the first one selected, it feels good and it’s definitely an honor.”
The Big 33 game will also be played alongside the two East/West games.
Parton was named to the East Team at the wide receiver position after a season where he posted school records in catches (58), receiving yards (1,052) and receiving touchdowns (12). He’ll take the field with some of the best players in the state to showcase his talents one last time at the high school level before he moves on to East Stroudsburg University.
“I just got a text like a month ago…one of the coaches asked me to play,” Parton said. “It just came out of nowhere. It’s definitely an honor to be a selected in a game that has the top players in Pennsylvania.”
Coincidentally, Parton will suit up with one of his future college teammates on the East Team as well.
“It’s going to be cool to play with the top players in the state around me, and see how the game is played at I’m assuming a different pace with all these top players,” Parton said. “It’s probably going to be a little faster paced. I’m excited to see how it works.”
Parton will play in the first of two games on the day. Kickoff for the Class 1A-3A game is set for Sunday, May 30, at noon at Central Dauphin’s Landis Field. The second game is set for 5 p.m.
For those not in attendance, the games will be streamed on PAFootballNews.com.
