Charlotte Christian's Blazevich picks VMI

Charlotte Christian RB Parker Blazevich has accepted a scholarship offer from VMI, Christian coach Jason Estep said today.

“He could play at other schools, but he has a strong military interest; he wants to serve his country,” Estep said. “Parker is a great player with a great work ethic. He will be a great addition to the program at VMI.”

Blazevich is a blazer. He’s 6-foot and 185 pounds, and has been clocked at 4.52 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Primarily a blocker this season, Blazevich has been a key to the Knights’ 8-2 season, rushing for 191 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Blazevich was also attracting serious interest from The Citadel, along with attention Army and Air Force.

“But when VMI offered, that was what he wanted,” Estep said.
