Steelers' Willie Parker is the pride of Clinton

"(Willie Parker) was about five years old and wanted to play football so I told my wife to sign him up," Willie Sr. said. "He was so small then that his helmet was too big and was turned sideways on his head. When he got in the game, he kind of stood there looking at the boy with the ball and I said, 'Go get him!' Willie ran into two of them and knocked them both down. It was on then." (Fayetteville Observer)
