HUNTINGTON - You mention the name Chris Parker to the average Marshall football fan over the age of 25 or so, they will recount tales of championship football and No. 36 being the greatest running back in Thundering Herd history.
A member of the Marshall Athletic Hall of Fame - and up for the National Football Foundation's College Football Hall of Fame on the past two ballots - Parker is Marshall's all-time rushing leader with 5,924 yards from 1992-95. Parker leads in rushing touchdowns with 68. Parker also is the top single-season rusher - three times - as he had 1,750 yards in 1993, 1,728 yards in 1994 and 1,833 yards in 1995, coming on a record 349 attempts that season. MU won the NCAA Division I-AA national championship his freshman year (1992), played for the title in 1993 and 1995 and won the Southern Conference title and reached the I-AA semifinals in '94. But mention Chris Parker to folks in Wilmington, N.C., and they will tell you about a great family man, a middle school assistant coach, an part-time actor with a full-time actress for a wife, a dedicated church person and a guy who likes to fish anytime he can. Parker is a little of all of these, and much more, as he and many of his 1992 teammates will return to Marshall on the Oct. 26-27 weekend for the 20th anniversary of the national championship, won 31-28 over Youngstown State. Just recently moved to Wilmington, Parker is as happy with his life as he was once so very, very sad. Not signed by any school on National Signing Day in 1991, Parker had talked at times to then-Herd assistant coach Mickey Matthews about coming to Marshall, if the running back raised his ACT score. By May, Parker had done just that, and Matthews convinced Coach Jim Donnan to give the Lynchburg, Va., native a scholarship. But Parker, with his girlfriend and three others, decided to make a visit on Marshall unannounced, and on the way home, the car Parker was driving got sideways in the construction and rain at the Nitro-St. Albans Bridge. As a result, Parker would eventually plead to negligent homicide some months late as three persons, including his girlfriend, died and Parker was burned so badly his skin graphs had to be wrapped to protect them from the Marshall University Stadium turf. Later that first year as a redshirt, he met Kimberly Coleman, and she may have saved his life by coming into what had been a long, lonely year of the kind of regrets hardly bore by any man. Now, 20 years late, Parker has been an NFL player, and joined his wife (who had a speaking role, he proudly recounted) in acting in the movie, "Somebody's Child," which was just shown on the GMC Network on Saturday night nationally, the story of a family's second chance after the challenges of dealing with a secret held for many years by the mother. "We are also doing some videos on YouTube," Parker said in a recent conversation, having gone fishing on Sunday morning, then attended the novel 4 p.m. services at his church, the Greater Wilmington Church. Videos have included "Are You Ready for Some Football," and Parker (36) is still the all time others, and Kim has a portfolio leading rusher in MU history. of shots on Facebook - from which she keeps her non-Facebook husband up with news on former teammates. "I talk with Glenn Pedro from time to time," Parker said of the former Herd running back with who he played from 1991-93. Parker is often struck about the difference people see depending on when they knew him. "We just had some new neighbors move in, and the couple are both Marshall grads," he said. "When they found out I was the Marshall Chris Parker, they were all about the years playing football. It is kind of surreal when that happens." But in the other towns they have lived, it is very different. After his Marshall career ended, Parker signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1996, making the practice squad as an undrafted player. He was set to become a full member of the team in 1997 when he tore up his knee in the final preseason game. He was carried by the team until 1998, when he was released. The same work ethic he had at Lynchburg and Huntington was apparent in Jacksonville, as a former equipment manager related at a convention. At 5 feet 11, 198 pounds, Parker was never the biggest guy on the field, but he ran with a power that came from within. Folks who knew Chris and Kim in Richmond, Va., Raleigh, N.C., and now in Wilmington since June would never guess the quiet Parker once the most feared back in the SoCon and in I-AA football. Folks who knew Chris and Kim in Richmond, Va., Raleigh, N.C., and now in Wilmington since June would never guess the quiet Parker once the most feared back in the SoCon and in I-AA football. "It's special, Huntington is always going to be where I was part of something very special," said Parker of the reunion built around the Herd's UCF home game on Oct. 27. "We will always consider Huntington one of our homes." These days, Parker stays busy with a job with ADP Payroll Services, where he has worked for over 10 years. "I'm the project manager for training in Human Resources, I guess you might say in Adult Education," Parker said. Chris and Kim have two children, a son in the eighth grade and a daughter in high school. Parker is an assistant coach with the Wilmington Middle Grove Middle School team, helping coach the running backs including his son, Caleb. His daughter, Sameria, had some initial angst about both moving and then moving up from middle school in Raleigh to high school in Wilmington. "But she has handled it like a champ, and has made some very good friends already," Parker said. He stays involved in the youth ministry in Wilmington, "and I guess you could call me a missionary for my church, but we don't leave the U.S., but we work with people all over the country." But when he is not working at ADP, at church, coaching his son's team, acting or being a husband and dad, you can find Parker fishing, and Wilmington is the best fishing he has found yet. "I fish a lot," said Parker, who spent that morning at the pier fishing from dawn until about 12:30 p.m., when he returned home to get ready for church services at 4 p.m. "You know what they say, even a bad day fishing beats a good day just about anywhere else. Right after that, it will be the return of husband-dad-coach-manager-actor-missionary-fisherman back in Wilmington - and both are all right these days with Chris Parker.
