Already making plays: Micah Parsons responsible for collecting first turnover in Hall of Fame Game
Less than four minutes into the first football game of August, former Penn State star linebacker Micah Parsons is making plays.
Parsons collected the first turnover of Thursday night’s Hall of Fame Game between the Cowboys and Steelers. A botched play by Pittsburgh resulted in the ball being pitched to the turf and the first-round selection out of Penn State was there to grab it.
The fumble came at the 11:44 mark of the 1st quarter. The Hall of Fame Game is the first NFL preseason game of 2021. Here is the clip:

Parsons was the No. 12 pick of the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. He’s already making a quick impact for Dallas.
Despite opting out of the 2020 campaign at Penn State because of the pandemic, Parsons was considered one of the best defensive prospects in the class. He was a consensus All-American in 2019 and was also named the B1G Linebacker of the Year that season.
