Maine-Endwell’s Parker Stokes is the Gatorade New York Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year!
The Gatorade Player of the Year program recognizes the nation’s most elite high school athletes for not only athletic excellence, but also for high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character. Players of the Year are selected by the Gatorade Player of the Year Selection Committee, which work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport.
As part of his recognition and through the Gatorade Play It Forward initiative, Gatorade will donate $1,000 to a sports-based organization of Parker’s choosing.
Parker will be a member of the cross country and track teams at Georgetown University following graduation this June.
