LaMarcus Parks, an all-region player on Cedar Grove’s Class 3A championship football team, died in a car accident last weekend.

Cedar Grove principal Clifton Spears told 11Alive News, the first to report, that three others in the car suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Parks, a junior defensive end, was the team’s fifth-leading tackler last season and made tackles in Cedar Grove’s 49-28 victory over Savannah Christian on Dec. 13 in the Class 3A final at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Parks was a first-team member of the Region 5-3A all-region team.
