Our hearts are heavy tonight as the TSU Family mourns the loss of former Tiger Hakeem Parker.
Parker passed away this morning after a battle with cancer. He was a member of the Tennessee State football team for three years.
He began his career at TSU in 2011 and as a true freshman, played in nine games.
Parker spent time at East Central Community College, before transferring back to Tennessee State. In 2014, he saw action in four games as a redshirt junior and averaged 12.8 yards per reception. In his final season as a Tiger, Hakeem made appearances in four contests.
A native of New Orleans, Hakeem graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from Tennessee State.
