At 6-foot-5 and almost 200 pounds, Brady senior Parker Linnard has the look of a big-play receiver. With 25 catches for 700 yards last season, he also has the credentials.
But after producing those numbers alongside or across from graduated twins Caleb and Benjamin Galindo, Linnard will face the new challenge in 2020: proving he can repeat or improve upon that production as the Bulldogs’ go-to guy.
With much of Brady’s skill position talent lost to graduation, Linnard and sophomore running back J.D. Ibarra (78-413, 3 TDs) will be the standard bearers at their respective positions this fall. And as a senior, Linnard will be leaned on particularly heavily — both as a playmaker and leader for coach Shay Easterwood’s squad.
