If there is one quarterback who has demonstrated how important camps are and the importance of showcasing his abilities at any given opportunity, it is 6-2, 205 pound QB Parker Leise. The Class of 2023 quarterback, currently ranked as the 76th-best at his position by The Prototyp, not only possesses the measurables desirable of a Division I FBS program, but the attributes as well. Leise runs a 4.8s 40-yard dash, 4.3 shuttle, and maintains a 3.8 GPA. With one Division I FBS offer to date from Kansas, Leise understands the importance the current off-season and his upcoming junior year plays in earning several more offers.
Leise began to immerse himself in the camp circuit in 2019 prior to his freshman football season. Leise impressed and, as a result, he was named the Top Spin/Velocity Thrower at the 2019 Manning Passing Academy and a 2019 NENextt Super State Freshman. This motivated Leise even more for the following off-season and the country-wide lock downs did not stop him from showcasing his abilities and the work put into his craft. If anything, it provided him with more time to dedicate to his training and into improving his game. Leise has performed exceptionally well at all of his camps and has earned many accolades along the way. Throughout 2020, Leise’s acknowledgements and accolades included:
· Top Performer Las Vegas - 1/25/2020
· Best Thrower, QBUniverse St. Louis - 2/28/2020
· Game-breaker Offensive MVP Nashville - 6/28/2020
· Top Performer, Rise and Fire Chicago, Joe Tramble Preps247 - Fall 2020
· TOP 10 2023 QB RECRUIT, College Football Today ESPN+ - 11/13/2020
Following a successful 2020, Leise was named a Top 10 2023 QB Recruit by ESPN+’s College Football Today in November. He also received praise in December from Coach Greg Holcomb (Next Level Athletix) in which he suggested Leise as an “absolute stud in the 2023 class” with a “massive ceiling”.
Leise hopes to ride the momentum from 2020 into this year and continue to tally up the awards, proving himself to be one of the best quarterbacks in the country. He has already been named Top Performer MVP at QBU in St. Louis, carried his 7-on-7 team through 13 games at The Show and UC Underclassman Showcase at IMG Academy all the way to the championship game, and will attend a Rivals Camp in Indianapolis on May 9th. Leise has also been invited to an Elite 11 Regional, which he will be attending in Nashville on May 16th, as well as, attending several college camps throughout the summer once the dead period is lifted June 1st.
Leise trains privately with Coach Justin Hoover at Spin It Academy (Elite 11) in Kansas City. This past semester, he transferred to Shawnee Mission East High School in Kansas City, KS from Creighton Prep in Omaha, where Coach Hoover is also the head coach. Through his training, Leise has developed consistency, aptitude, range, and both a physical and mental skill set that has helped him earn a spot in Coach Hoover’s high level training sessions with college and pro quarterbacks. Leise is confident that with his experience and training regimen, he can contribute and lead teams to win championships at the Division 1 FBS level.
