Zephyrhills track and field star Jamieshia Parker is only a junior, but she already has offers from two elite college programs: LSU and Tennessee. Parker, our athlete of the year last spring on the North Suncoast, owns Zephyrhills individual records of 18 feet, 9 1/2 inches in the long jump, 12.01 seconds in the 100-meter dash and 25.42 seconds in the 200.

Additionally, she was part of a record-breaking 4x100 relay.

"She's an exceptional talent," said Bulldogs coach and former Olympic sprinter Jason Rouser.
