 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Daniel Parker's love of life, his family and his spiritual faith have never been this strong. And a few of his very close friends have wondered why, as the former Examiner Offensive Player of the Year and current University of Missouri tight end nearly lost his right eye to an infection that resulted in four major surgical procedures. After five months of lingering doubt, including two months of dealing with double vision and the type of pain that brought Parker to his knees, the Blue Springs High School graduate regained full vision in the eye last week. "After one of the surgeries, they told me I may not be able to see again," Parker said from his family's apartment in Blue Springs. "They said I might not be able to play football again. "And I put everything in the hands of God. The surgeons had done their job, my family and friends had been praying, and now it was all up to God."

Some of his friends questioned his decision to turn his life over to God, especially since he had been going through hell on earth with all the medical procedures that began one January morning in Blue Springs. "My friends asked, 'How could God let this happen?'" Parker said, as his brother Jackson played a video game across the room and his mother Jennifer sat by her son. "My life was moving a little too fast - a lot too fast - and I think this was God's way of telling me to slow down. "If this wouldn't have happened, I don't really know where my life would be right now. It gave me a chance to look at my life and realize just how blessed I am." - Columbia Daily Tribune
