There are many different ways to reach the top of a depth chart. Some grow up in a big football market, get noticed early and play right away. But for Andrew Parchment, the journey wasn’t quite so simple. A Florida native, Parchment started his collegiate career at Northern Illinois, before transferring to Iowa Central Community College after two seasons. He did well enough at the JUCO level to get a call from Les Miles to come play at Kansas, and his dream of playing at the major college football level finally became a reality. Beyond working hard, how’d it happen? There’s the close-knit family with Caribbean roots, and Parchment’s love of making music to keep him focused. It was a difficult road to get to this point for Parchment, but he now sits atop the depth chart as KU’s top option in the passing game.
