Jabari Parker wins Gatorade national player of year

For years, Simeon Career Academy junior Jabari Parker has lived by the mantra "basketball is what I do, not who I am." Thursday, that combination of "what" and "who" made Parker part of a prep sports legacy when he was named the 2011-12 Gatorade National Boys' Basketball Player of the Year. Parker was surprised with the news in his Spanish class by seven-time NBA All-Star Alonzo Mourning, who earned Gatorade National Player of the Year honors in 1987-88. (ESPN.com)
