Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Thomas "Jim" Parker (April 3, 1934 - July 18, 2005) was a college and professional American football player in the 1950s and '60s. He is a member of the College and Professional Football Halls of Fame. Parker was a guard for the Ohio State University Buckeyes from 1954 to 1956, playing on both the offensive and defensive lines. Parker was known for his size, strength and quickness, and these talents, used for clearing a path for running backs, helped demonstrate the feasibility of head coach Woody Hayes' three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust offense -- an offensive philosophy that had been questioned as suitable for big-time college football. Due in part to Parker, Hayes won his first national championship in 1954.show more
