Player Bio

Background

Parker was selected by St Kilda with pick No. 47 in the 2018 National Draft.

 The lively South Fremantle forward booted 27 majors from 20 games in the 2018 WAFL Season, with his dynamism and creativity around goal set to rejuvenate the Saints’ forward line.

His speed, tenacity at the contest and ability to take high-flying marks have further established him as an excitement machine, with the 23-year-old ready to prove his worth on the big stage.

After being told his talents wouldn’t get him onto a senior list and that he was “no good” at footy, Parker will be intent on showing his doubters just what he can bring to the table for the red, white and black.
