Jupiter K Cody Parkey Commits to Auburn 

By Jason Lieser

This has been a long time coming and it’s finally official: Jupiter kicker and punter Cody Parkey, a junior, received an offer and has committed to play for Auburn.

Parkey handles all long kicks for Jupiter, sharing time with his older brother Doug. Cody has hit field goals of 55, 51, 49, 45 and 37 yards this season.

Doug just finished his senior year and hopes to walk on at Florida Atlantic, South Florida or Central Florida. He has also spoken with Northwestern, Mississippi State and a few other programs.

Cody Parkey has been hoping to play the Tigers for years, and his mother (an Auburn grad) is thrilled, too.

Both players continue a long tradition of great Warriors kickers, including current Miami Hurricane Matt Bosher.

Parkey is the second kicker from this area to receive a full scholarship offer, with Cardinal Newman’s Brendan Gibbons pledging to Michigan last week.
