Google Lance Parker and you're as likely to find him modelling underwear as often as stopping a scoring chance on the soccer pitch at Clarke Stadium.

Parker is the keeper for FC Edmonton, but he's also in the running for hottest bachelor in America, at least according to Cosmopolitan magazine readers.

Parker, who has appeared in GQ and Men's Health magazines, was entered as the representative for his home state of Oklahoma in the Cosmo competition by a friend.

"It's all fun," he said. "Whether I win or don't, I'm going to have a good time with it."

Parker admits he's taken some teasing from his teammates.

"They gave me a pretty hard time about it, but it's all in good fun so I don't mind it."

The keeper says whatever happens, soccer will always come first.

The magazine's readers will determine the bachelor of the year in a vote which closes Oct. 18.

The winner gets a cash prize of $10,000.
