Parker Kirby is one of the biggest athletes in the school. He has been apart of the basketball team, football team, soccer team, and baseball team throughout his four years as a Ionia High School student. He played basketball all four years, played soccer for a two years, played football for two years, played baseball all his years in high school. But, Parker is also known for his grades, showing what a hard working person he is.

“My favorite sport in high school was most definitely baseball; I love the game so much it’s so fun,” Parker declares. “I love how laid back everything is and how it allows you to build great relationships with your teammates.”

For football he was called “mom” on the field, because he was the quarterback and you want no one to hit your mom. “I liked how I was at my strongest during the football season ,what I mean by that is physical strength.”

When asked why he left the game he said, “I wanted to try something new. That new thing I wanted to try was soccer.” Parker enjoyed the challenge of learning a new sport, “[It] helped me get into great  physical shape.”

When asked about his favorite thing in basketball he replied, ” I know I said baseball was my favorite sport, but I enjoyed playing basketball the most because it is very physically and mentally challenging. I built really good relationship with my coaches. I have also played the most basketball in my life, so that’s why I probably enjoyed it the most out of all the sports that I have been part of.”

He will miss his coaches and teammates and says, “I was blessed have the opportunities.”
