TSU Mourns the Loss of Former Tiger Hakeem Parker

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.
