Micah Parsons Aims To Emulate Dallas Cowboys Legend Ware

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons hopes to emulate his mentor, DeMarcus Ware, and be recognized by the Hall of Fame.

Micah Parsons has had plenty of recognition already during his two NFL seasons. The 24-year-old won the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year for 2021. As well as that, he’s earned two first-team All-Pro honors and two Pro Bowl nods.

DeMarcus Ware is on his mind as the former Cowboys linebacker was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame. Ware played nine seasons in Dallas and left as their all-time leader in sacks with 117.

“Talk about a guy that set the standard. Twenty-sack seasons, I mean a guy who’s just outright dominated in his prime and went out in the right way,” Micah Parsons said. 

“I couldn’t be more excited for him. I thought he was a first-ballot guy. A guy that I looked up to. His IQ, bro, anytime you just talk to him about football, when he just came in that one day, I just learned so much. And he just really grabs the room, and man, when you talk about handwork and technical and soundness, that guy is the epitome of that.”

The bar is high regarding establishing your legacy as far as Parsons is concerned. He doesn’t want to be any old Hall of Famer.

“When you talk about great careers, (when) you talk about the Hall of Fame, like I don’t think I just want to make the Hall of Fame. I just want to be known as one of the greatest Hall of Famers,” Parsons said. 

“There’s categories to everything, there’s good, there’s great and there’s like, perfect. … When you talk about me, I don’t want to just be mentioned in the Hall of Fame. Yeah, that’s a great accolade, but I want to be one of the greatest in the Hall of Fame.”
