Parker Shaunfield Named to InTouch Credit Union Conference USA All-Academic Football Team
HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Southern Miss place kicker Parker Shaunfield earned selection to the InTouch Credit Union Conference USA All-Academic football team Friday in a release by the league office.
The redshirt junior from Aledo, Texas, collected this honor for the first time and holds a 3.449 grade point average in Construction Engineering. During his academic career, Shaunfield has been named to dean’s List four times and athletic director’s honor roll twice. In addition, he was voted a member of the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll three times.
Shaunfield leads the team in scoring with 92 points for the 2017 Golden Eagles and, earlier this season, saw his school-record string of 87 made extra points to start his career end, suffering his first and only extra point miss of his career.
In the area of field goals, Shaunfield made 17-of-20 attempts during the regular season, including 15 in row at one point. He notched a career-best four field goals against Louisiana Tech, including a 49-yarder with under 1:30 to play to help keep the Golden Eagles in a game that they eventually won in double overtime. He added his career long kick, of 51 yards, on the final play of the first half at Rice.
This is the eight consecutive year that the Golden Eagle program has collected at least one individual on this prestigious team.
