Brian Parker stabbing in news again

Brian Parker, the troubled receiver who started his football career at Southeast and eventually played and graduated from the former Bradenton Prep, recently found himself in the news again.

Parker signed a scholarship to play football for Connecticut, but never took the field for the Huskies because of reported academic issues. The 6-4, 215 pounder transferred and played for Grand Rapids Community College in Michigan last season.

Earlier this month a man accused of disposing of one of the knives used in the fight that ended with the death of UConn football player Jasper Howard applied for a special form of probation.

Rahim Muhammad is charged with hindering the prosecution. He applied in Superior Court for accelerated rehabilitation, a probation program that could leave him without a criminal record. A hearing on the request will be held June 10.

Hakim Muhammad was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for assault. His friend, John Lomax is serving an 18 year sentence for manslaughter in Howard’s death.
