In Memory of John Parrish

Last night Jackson Christian School lost what I'm certain would have been a future superstar runner but he shined even brighter on the inside as a good human being, it seems he was almost too good for this earth. As a 10th grader he was JCS's 2nd fastest runner and had won two races this year and he got 2nd place eight times this year. His fastest time in X-C was 16:58.90 but he shined even brighter on the Track, running middle distance and anchoring two relays as a Freshman on the JCS Track team. As his coach I'm devastated with a broken heart! My love and respect to his family! God Speed, The Shooting Star of West Tennennee!
Coach Cannedy
