Don't let the smile fool you…Johnny Parra is an ex-marine and a pre-season JC All-American candidate going into the 2001 season who made a name for himself as a defensive tackle to be reckoned with. He knows how to take take care of business in the trenches.

As stated in the press release published by the University of Idaho, in 2001 Parra had 76 tackles (17 solo), 9 tackles for loss, 4 quarterback sacks, and 33 quarterback hurries. If he's even half this productive for the Vandal defense this year, he'll probably be hailed as one of the biggest finds of this recruiting season.
