Hello, I had 2 sons attend Francis Junior High. I was the First Coach for the Baseball and Football Team. I hope Coach Parker is doing well. I consider him my friend. I had total cooperation with the teachers and staff. The young students athletes were always respectful. I thank the School and Coach Parker for having the confidence in letting me participate with the school. It was very rewarding, and I hope that I provided to the students athletes proper instruction and example. Go Tigers!
