D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ “Before my senior year I knew, depending on how my season went, Ihad a shot,” he said. “I played well my whole year and comingtowards the end of the year I thought I might have a shot. As itprogressed in the offseason, I could tell I would get some interest.”Although Parker is done wearing the Sun Devil pitchfork, he stillstays attentive to what’s happening with his former team amid thetransition led by new head coach Todd Graham.“I’m trying to stay close and on top of it, I try to keep up with someof my friends that are still there,” Parker said. “But at the same timeit’s hard — I’ve got my own stuff going on even though it’s only tento fifteen minutes away.“I’m excited to see how they do this year and how the quarterbackbattle shakes out.
