St. Albans, VT -- The High School Huddle team has chosen a BFA-St. Albans Jr. Joel Parady play as the play of the night two weeks in a row. That's reason enough to name him our High School Student-Athlete of the Week. 

 "I couldn't really tell you," said junior RB/LB Joel Parady when asked about his propensity for highlight reel plays. "It's just always come naturally to me. I just see things differently. I see holes open up, sometimes a little more. We're all pretty friendly about it, we joke around. My good friends will joke around and say 'oh I'm not voting for you I'm going to vote for someone else, keep the competition up.' I don't have that height that some people are born with, I don't have that natural gift."

 "As a football player Joel has tremendous instincts." Bobwhites Head Coach Geoff Murray said. "It's just a feel for the game. He reads play very well. He just has a nose for the ball. But most importantly I think it's his attitude. The idea that he's going to make the play and that he's going to be the one to make the play."

What does Parady pick as his best play?

"Last year, against Colchester in JV." said Parady.

"Well it started out, he was running an out." continued BFA QB Robert Kelly. "And I dropped back, and he's someone you can count on to catch the ball, so I threw it to him."

"I caught the ball from Robert, and I turned."

"He turns around and heads up the field and lays a hit on the kid and his helmet just comes flying off. And I'm like, this kid is still going into the endzone."

"But I kept going and ran into the endzone. It doesn't count as a touchdown, but I think that was the coolest moment I've ever had. I kind of felt a little more tough."

Coach Murray says, "There's a certain way that we expect Bobwhite football players to behave, and then play on the field. and he's a prime example of what we want on the field."
