A three sport athlete from Hackensack, NJ, Charles (Chubby) Parcells played in portions of three seasons for the basketball team, starting in the 1932-33 and 1934-35 seasons.

A quarterback for the Hoyas in that same era, he scored five of the Hoyas' nine touchdowns in the 1934 season. Parcells' defensive efforts in a 9-0 win over Manhattan before 25,000 at Ebbets Field and a scoreless tie with NYU at Yankee Stadium led to his name added as an honorable mention All-America selection in 1934 among Eastern sportswriters. Parcells also ran track for Georgetown in the 50 and 100 yard dash.

After the 1934 season, Parcells worked to earn his law degree, coaching the freshmen football team to earn some extra money. In 1937, he joined the FBI as a field agent in Chicago, but following marriage, he resigned from the FBI to move back to New Jersey and start a family. It was in Oradell, NJ that his son Duane, better known as Bill Parcells, the Pro Football Hall of Fame coach, became an all-region player who eventually starred at Colgate before going into coaching.
