Remembering Coach Parks

 

Friends, family, colleagues and students gathered on the Menlo-Atherton High School football field on Sept. 17 for a memorial for Coach Ben Parks, who died Aug. 19 at age 77.

Coach Parks retired from M-A in 1999 after 31 years of coaching football and wrestling, but couldn't stay away, returning to work with, encourage and inspire young athletes throughout his last years.
