Parsons brings 15 years of experience, including an eight-year run with Palmyra where he racked up 171 wins, three district championships, and two state quarterfinal appearances. After resigning in 2020, Parsons turned his attention to coaching Palmyra boys and girls golf where helped lead the boys team to the Class 2 State Championship last year.
