DENISON, TX -- A Yellow Jacket baseball stand out will head to McPherson, Kan. in the fall.
Michael Parker, a star pitcher, will take his strong right arm to compete for Central Christian College.
He says during his time at Denison High he's learned how to respect the game, become a better athlete, to always work hard and set high goals to achieve.
He's played baseball since he was seven years old and was elated to finally reach this milestone.
"It's really exciting and I hope to achieve more and become better," he said.
He plans to study exercise science in his pursuit to becoming a physical therapist and would also like to extend his baseball career after college.
