Parker helped to introduce Chris Doleman

This tidbit is taken from the York City website and is a quote from a speech that York Mayor C. Kim Bracey made on this past April 12 on the State of the City of York. It may shed some light on Parker's scholarship status.

Helping me present the White Rose Hall of Fame Award, I will ask Kelvin Parker to take the stage.
