DeVante Parker Facts

  1. While he was studying at Ballard High School, DeVante was a three-sport star performer (football, track, and basketball). In football, he was a 2-time ‘All-State’ performer and was named in the first-team All-State by The Courier-Journal. In his junior year, he had been named the joint winner of the ‘Paul Hornung Award’ as the best player in the state.
  2. In his senior year, he had recorded 68 passes for 1,793 yards (26.4 yards per catch) and 19 touchdowns which placed him 4th all-time in the state’s history. He had finished his high school career as one of its best-ever wide receivers with 3,274 yards, which was the fifth-best performance of all time.
  3. His achievements in track & field were no less stellar. He had lettered in all 4 high school years as a sprinter. At the 2011 Class 3A Region 4 Championship, he had helped his 4×100 m relay team earn the top position in the state until they were defeated by bitter rivals Louisville Eastern High School. He had also taken the 4×200 m relay team to the top position.

  5. In his junior year, he had scored a school record-tying 12 touchdowns. He was named in the ‘First-team All-AAC (American Athletic Conference)’ in 2013, his junior year, and the ‘Second-team All-ACC‘ in 2014, his senior year.
  6. Although he had missed the first 7 games of his senior year with an injury, his performances until then were enough for him to be picked 14th overall in the 1st round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins.
  7. In the Week 13 game of the 2020 NFL season, playing for the Miami Dolphins, against the Cincinnati Bengals, he was ejected from the game after getting involved in a physical altercation with the opposition players.
