Parker, a 6'3" guard/forward, is a dazzling combination of size, versatility, basketball skill and intelligence.

The Chicago Simeon program has a deep basketball tradition recording IHSA Class AA state championships in 1984 under head coach Bob Hambric, and back-to-back state titles in 2007 and 2008 under the direction of head coach Robert Smith.

Chicago Simeon has a tremendous amount of young talent currently in the program that will be moving up to the varsity ranks next season. The sophomore team has a perfect record of 20-0 with 6'0" Darien Walker, 5'11" Jelani Neely, 6'4" Jeremiah Jackson, 6'4" Steve Taylor and 6'5" Rayshawn McLrath among the standouts.
