Parkway's Chloe Larry named Player of the Week

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Chloe Larry is undoubtedly leaving her legacy at Parkway.

You might recognize the star guard because of her talent on the court in the Shreveport-bossier area, but what you might not know is she struggles with confidence.

“If somebody else was scoring, I would keep assisting them, and I would play defense,” Larry said. “I would do all the other things.”

But not anymore.

“She’s been more vocal this year as a senior, and so I’m excited about that,” said head coach Gloria Williams. “I’ve been preaching that since freshman year.”

Coach Williams has played a huge part in Chloe’s journey by strengthening her confidence, saying it’s the trust between them in moments it’s needed most.

“Since freshman year has been amazing,” Larry said. “She’s always been there. She’s always stressing me even when I didn’t have confidence myself.”

The feeling is mutual, saying Chloe has made just as significant of an impact on her head coach.

“I feel like she’s made me a better coach, not just a better coach, but a better person than you know she’s contagious,” Williams said. “She’s just a great kid.”

For the third year in a row, the Lady Panthers are Marsh Madness bound. The difference between this year and last is she won’t have current LSU guard Mikaylah Williams by her side. 

“MK she was a great leader last year and then that kind of led over to me I learned from everybody I’m around,” Larry said.

“When you see one, you see the other. But now that Mikaylah is gone, it’s Chloe,” Williams said. “That’s the legacy that she’s going to leave here at Parkway — being a phenomenal shooter, a phenomenal defender, and an even more phenomenal person.”

Going into her final two games wearing Parkway across her chest, Chloe has one thing in mind — becoming back-to-back state champs.

“You dream about it, and it’s finally here,” Larry said. “We want that one more week so it’s about the loose balls, it’s about the rebounds, it’s about who has more heart.”

“You’ve already marked your stamp on the state of Louisiana in basketball, enjoy it,” Williams said. “Enjoy this moment because you have earned that.”

The Parkway Lady Panthers will take on Walker in the LHSAA girls basketball semi-final game on Thursday, Feb. 29.
