Harrison Central’s Jimmy Parker named National Softball Coach of the Year

What a month it’s been for Harrison Central Softball Coach Jimmy Parker, having already been named to the Gulfport Sports Hall of Fame and now the recipient of the 2022 National Softball Coach of the Year award.

That award is courtesy of the National High School Athletic Coaches Association and was announced during its national convention in Altoona, Iowa.

Coach Parker was nominated by the MSHAA, beating out seven other finalists for this prestigious honor, based on longevity, service to high school athletics, honors, championship years, and winning percentage.

The Red Rebelettes won the state title in 2002, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
