After starring at Aberdeen High School, Pargo played two seasons at Itawamba Community College (2009-11) before spending a year at Mississippi Valley State and a final year at Faulkner (Ala.) University. He played for the CIF's Dodge City Law during the 2017 season and was featured two consecutive weeks in ESPN Sportscenter's Top 10 Plays of the Day.

Salina will be part of the CIF's Northern Conference with the Wichita Force, Sioux City Bandits and Omaha Beef. The Southern Conference consists of the Amarillo Venom, Oklahoma Flying Aces, Duke City Gladiators and Texas Revolution. The Liberty will play a 12-game regular season schedule in 2019.
