In the Saddle — Scott Parkinson

CHICKASHA – With two conference wins under their belts, Scott Parkinson and the Drover men feel like the season is heading in the right direction.

“We’re getting there. Training session by training session it seems to be improving day by day, and that’s all we can ask for,” Parkinson said. “We just need to keep improving, keep gelling as a team.”

The team has several home games coming up, and Parkinson said traveling doesn’t compare to his home field.

“There’s just nothing like playing at home,” he said. “For me, put me in my apartment, in my dorm room, and I’ll take playing at home all day. There’s nothing like playing at the Drover Dome. Nothing like it.”

In addition to his student-athlete responsibilities, Parkinson is an assistant coach at Chickasha High School for both the men’s and women’s programs. He said he loves watching the progress of his players.

“I think it’s using the bits of knowledge that we do know about the game that some of the younger kids don’t know,” he said. “Or maybe seeing something that they’re not doing, getting them to make the change on the field and seeing a goal from it or a good play. That makes me proud.”
