Micah Parson drafted by Dallas Cowboys

Micah Parsons, the Harrisburg High graduate, has indeed been drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft last night.

The video highlight is of Parson’s play in the 2019 Cotton Bowl where he won the Defensive Player of the Game award.

Micah becomes on the first player from the Susquehanna Valley to be drafted in the first round.

After a long offseason of speculation, as well as a trade back with the division rival, the Dallas Cowboys made their 2021 NFL Draft decision final on Thursday night, selecting Penn State Linebacker Micah Parsons with the No. 12 overall pick.

And on Friday, Parsons and his family arrived, for the first time, here at The Star.

“The No. 1 franchise in the world!” marveled his family members as he entered the doors.

Dallas now unites Parsons with the Cowboys’ young linebacker group of Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith, where he should be one of the candidates to man a starting linebacker position.
