Parry Lands Starting Full-Back Position

Sponsored by:

Philadelphia, PA — Sonora High School graduate Josh Parry will once again be returning to the starting line-up of the NFL´s Philadelphia Eagles.

Parry played backup full-back last season after starter Jon Richie suffered a knee injury that kept him sidelined for most of the season.

After being cut from the roster four times, Parry played a big role in the Eagles getting to last year´s Super Bowl.

Parry beat out Richie for the starting position this season after showing what Philadelphia Head Coach Andy Reid calls a “solid performance.”

Parry will begin the regular season rolling off of a shoulder sprain that kept him out of the Eagles´ final pre-season game against the New York Jets.

Parry graduated from Sonora in 1996 and moved on to a stellar career with San Jose State University before making it to the NFL.
