Stanford's Colby Parkinson garners Pac-12 Football Offensive Player of the Week honors
Nov 12, 2018
Stanford tight end Colby Parkinson is named Pac-12 Football Offensive Player of the Week after tying a school record with four touchdown receptions in Stanford's 48-17 victory over Oregon State. Parkinson also finished with a career-high six receptions (all for first downs) and 166 receiving yards to earn the most receiving yards by a Cardinal tight end since Colby Fleener’s 173 yards in the 2011 Orange Bowl. He is the first FBS tight end with four touchdown catches in a game since 2011 (Northwestern's Drake Dunsmore), and just the fifth to do so since 1996.
