Image result for parker martinExceptional CHS football running back, Parker Martin, senior, chooses to serve his country after graduating this coming spring.

Martin plans to enlist in the Marine Corps where he’ll begin at the infantry level. Although he can’t chose, he wants to be stationed in Puerto Rico.

The hardest part about joining the military for him will be staying away from his loved ones.

Parker says, “If I can deal with Marine Corps, I’ll stay for twenty years. I see myself married with a family by age 24, and living on base.”

He describes his experience as a Cavalier as “wonderful” and will miss playing sports most of all.

Martin will continue contact with his friends after graduation and leaves this advice for underclassmen:”Ignore all negativity; focus on yourself.”
