Chris Parker scored three rushing touchdowns and ran for 155 yards to carry Poly Prep past the Worcester Academy Hilltoppers 28–7 in Bay Ridge on Saturday.

Parker’s quick moves through holes opened up by 6-foot-5 superstar blocker Jay Hayes ensured that the Blue Devils would avenge last season’s loss to the Massachusetts school. The win also pushed Poly Prep’s record to 3–2 following a 47–28 defeat at the hands of the Hun School last week.

Parker took the victory with stride, claiming that he was merely following Hayes — who holds scholarship offers from 11 of the nation’s top college football programs — when he made touchdown runs of 40, 6, and 25-yards throughout the afternoon.

“I really can’t see over him,” Parker said. “But, then again, neither can the defense. He just finds me on these plays and pretty much tells me to follow behind him.”

Saturday’s win was earned on the ground, but it wasn’t meant to be. Poly Prep’s coaching staff wanted to throw the ball down field as much as possible, but the team had little success scoring as drives fell short of the end zone.

At halftime, Poly Prep changed its strategy and made sure Parker was handed the ball as much as possible.
