TIFFANY ON PARKER
2020 – “After the first month here in Charlottesville, Danny made the shift to the defensive side of midfield play and the change is starting to pay dividends for our program.  Combined with a noticeable improvement in his knowledge of our slide schemes, Danny is relying on his advantage of the superb athleticism he owns to make plays off the ground and to ignite our transition game.”
