Wade Parker, who played baseball for the LCC Runnin Lopes team from 2009-10, was one of the 19 Hotshot firefighters who perished while combating the Yarnell Hill wildfire in Prescott, Arizona earlier this week.

The Lamar Community College facebook website said Parker played infield for the team and was from Chino Valley, Arizona.  He was 22 years old and was the son of a fire captain, and recently joined the Hotshot team.

Scott Crampton, Wade Parker’s baseball coach at Lamar Community College, issued this statement about his former player:

“The entire LCC baseball family lost a quality young man with Wade Parker’s passing.  He was a strong Christian and a talented young man.   Our thoughts and prayers go out to his as well as the other firefighters’ families.”
