1.What sets you apart from other defensive backs?

My IQ level is high, I make a lot of plays all across the field, I’m always 2 steps ahead due to a lot of film studying, and I play a little nickel & cornerback not just safety.

2. What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

Energy that keeps the team pumped at all times through games and practices.

3. What past or present NFL coach would you want to learn from the most and why?

I would want to learn from Sean McDermott, he builds players I’ve noticed changes in the Bills defense and all the improvements I would love to learn better ways to play coverages and understanding the game in more depth level! 

4. What is a moment that improved you as a football player?

Sophomore season vs Otterbein university, we needed a big stop, I intercepted the ball in mid air on a 10 and out route and tossed it back to my teammates leading to change of momentum. This improved me as a player and made me want to make those type of plays every single time.

5. What are your favorite things about playing football for Wilmington College?

Being able to have access to the indoor facility and weight room at anytime, being around the team, working out 2-3 times a day with the team, we always have those extra workouts that everyone takes advantage of.

6. What should we know about Tre’quez Parks the person?

I’m a leader, very supportive, I take time out of my day to train and educate teammates and any in-coming freshman, consistently working always, trying to learn something new. I never settle because theirs always room to improve, calm and goofy around teammates and always enjoying team bonding.

7. How do you prepare for games?

Do morning mile before team breakfast , watch film and formations and wide receivers strengths and weaknesses, ladder drills, mobility stretching, a light lift and lastly calm my mind with silence before the game. 

8. What is your favorite coverage and why?

3-3-5 stack coverage, you can do so many schemes and blitz out of this coverage and it’s easy to install and adapt too.

9. What are you looking forward to in your upcoming season?

Looking forward to a great season, making history with my team and being an All American.

10. How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

I evaluate every challenge and how I can over come it and what decisions I have to make in order to do so.

11. What are you still learning as a football player?

Always learning, learning to react even faster, learning to recognize plays a lot faster and to call the plays out with no problem.

12. What do you love about the game of football?

I love it all but most importantly the grind it takes, it takes a lot of drill work for muscle memory, having all the techniques down pack, I love the games, but I love the hard work you have to put in behind the scenes to be the best
