Charlie Parker - JV Boys Head Coach and Etowah Graduate

 

When Allen Whitehart was named Head Boys Basketball coach in April of 2016, Charlie Parker was one of the first coaches he hired. Coach Parker, previously head coach at Duluth High School on the girls side, was ready to come home. 

Parker, an Etowah graduate, is an Eagle once again, this time as Head Coach of the JV Boys and assistant on Varsity. He's been instrumental in uniting the Etowah alumni and organizing our December 16th ALUMNI night vs Sequoyah where the throwback game will be played in the old gym. 

Parker recalls the best game he ever saw, in 2005, when Etowah was a 5 OT winner vs Eastside in the 1st round of State. 

Favorites:
Coach - Coach Morrisey - pitching at Etowah when Parker played
Player - Yonel Brown - Berkmar/KSU
Best Player he ever coached - Chris Singleton - FSU/NBA, Wizards
Sports Movie - Hoosiers

Personal: Married to Lauren and lives in Woodstock. They have 2 boys, Benson and Jackson

Coach Parker was an assistant at Etowah before coaching at Berkmar for 5 years as an assistant coach. That led him to being the head girls coach at Duluth for 2 seasons. We welcome him back and he's excited about putting Etowah Basketball on the map. 

 

"I want to see a winner at Etowah. This community wants it bad. And when we do, it's going to be amazing." - Coach Charlie Parker

Kam is an Eagles power forward who leads by example thru determination and toughness. Kam, born in GA and grew up in Acworth, moved in 7th grade to Woodstock and attended Booth Middle School. New to the area, Kam was cut as an 8th grader but didn't let that stop him from working on his game and improving. He made the team as a 9th grader and started for the Eagles all summer, contributing on both ends of the floor.

His favorite game was vs Roswell at home. He says he wasn't scoring much but he didn't get down on himself. "I got a ton of rebounds and played great D. When I do that it's going to be hard for us to lose."

His biggest influence is his mom, Karen, "She pushes me to be a better person and player."  He has 3 siblings in the area as well. His older brothers QJ and Brod and sister Danielle. 

 

Kam really enjoyed working the kids camp this summer as his team, the Leopards, won the championship! "It was cool to be the coach and feel what it is like to be helpless. I saw some really talented kids willing to work, learn, and get better. It was fun to see the kids look up to me and my other teammates."

 

Kam wants to be the guy that does everything for the team and tougher on defense. "I want to earn the reputation around the state that when you play Etowah that you are going to have to bring it versus us because we are going to compete."

 

This summer he saw a change in the team attitude and commitment. "I liked how we handled adversity better than the past and fought back a lot this summer."

His goals are to make all region team, possibly all state and win the region. Adding, "go 3-0 vs Woodstock too."

He has been playing at a high level and brought some much needed leadership to the program. Now surrounded by a team that is focused and working hard since June, Simonson is flourishing on and off the court. His performance this summer at Florida and Georgia State team camps earned him an invite to Emory Universities Elite Players invite only camp.

He has played a big role in the development of Jr Eagles, working Etowah's team camp, coaching the Blue Jays this summer. He noted that the kids camp was a lot of fun and he really enjoyed it.
