Parker Whitten talks Army

Fyffe defensive end Parker Whitten is one of a talented group of football players that signed with Army on Wednesday. ArmySports.com talked with Whitten about what attracted him to Army and his strengths on the field.

Parker Whitten, who first heard from Army during his sophomore year, visited West Point the second weekend of January and liked what he saw, "I really liked it. That's one of the prettiest places you'll ever see up there. That is just a special place up there. I liked the small classes and the coaching staff," said Whitten.

Whitten played nose guard for Fyffe but projects as a defensive end for Army. He had 83 tackles as a senior and earned Defensive Player of the Year honors. Whitten talked about his play on the field, "I try hard and I don't every give up. I enjoy a good challenge. I like getting down and dirty on the line and having a good ole time."

The Army-Navy game is something Whitten thinks is special and he looks forward to playing in it, "I'm really excited about that. I know it's like the biggest rivalry in the nation."

Wofford, in addition to Army, also offered Whitten. Whitten stated that The Citadel was also ready to offer him if he visited them but he cancelled that visit after committing Army.
