Hall of Famer Clarence ?Ace? Parker Dies At 101
The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that Parker died this morning.
After an All-American career as a single-wing tailback at Duke, Parker was drafted by the NFL?s Brooklyn Dodgers in 1937. He played with the Dodgers for five seasons, and calling him a two-way player doesn't quite do justice to everything he could do on the football field: Parker played offense, defense and special teams, and in 1938 he was reported to have played 656 minutes of the 660 minutes of that 11-game season.
