Tribune-Herald Athlete of the Week: Parker basketball ace Conner Brown

  • Senior Conner Brown is the first from Parker School to be honored as Athlete of the Week.

The senior is the first Parker Bull to be honored in this space, and Brown did it with gusto.

He was clutch from the free throw line in overtime last Wednesday, scoring 10 of his 33 points in OT as Parker upset Konawaena 55-47.


For good measure, Brown scored 18 points Friday in a loss to Kealakehe, 50-44.
