With multiple awards, the 2018 Offensive Lineman of the Year is pretty nonchalant, not wanting the spotlight. Park follows in the tradition of O-linemen playing in the shadows, but anchoring the whole offense. Do not mistake his easy going attitude though, because through and through, Park is all heart and willing to do anything for his team and teammates.

“I like to think of myself as a leader and someone teammates can come to for help,” he said. “When I step on the field for a game I focus on doing my job and if necessary helping the guy next to me.”

Playing for the guy next to him means a lot to Park and being a team was what got him playing at the age of 7. The best part about playing on the offensive line is that he gets to be physical and contribute to getting important yards or the touchdown.

Kyle mentions that Larry Allen, former offensive guard for the Dallas Cowboys, had size and speed, something that Kyle’s teammates say is “cool”. But he goes on to say about Allen, “his ability to push guys to the ground and his ability to chase down a linebacker who picked a ball at full speed is amazing for his size”.

Determined to play at the high school level, which he’ll be doing shortly, Parks hopes to get the opportunity to get to the next level. He would like to pursue a career with a combination of academics and sports. Physical Therapy or Athletic Program Development are two such careers that are intriguing.

His Father has helped to shape him to so that he can continue to chase this dream as well as his minor league coaches. “My father, who has helped coach me for the last five years, as well as my minor league coaches have all treated me the same, they are willing to give me as much as I give them,” he said. 

He’ll continue to draw on their support as he gears up for this next season. Kyle is prepared though, as he has been training in his home gym 4-5 days a week as well as watch film to see where he can improve.

I have the size and I have the strength so I am mostly working on my speed I have used agility ladders and treadmill to increase my speed and agility,” he stated. But he also enjoys playing flag football and badminton during the school year. Both aid in his overall athletic development. 

Staying loyal to my offseason workout routine allows me to reach performance goals I set for myself to be able to set new ones.”

When the lights on the field go out, and the door to the gym closes, Kyle remains positive no matter the outcome of the game or practice. He’s always working on improving year round.
