A tribute to Coach Parks: the passing of a legend

Longtime M-A football and wrestling coach died Friday at 77:

Coach Parks was a longtime fixture on the peninsula at Menlo Atherton HS as well as a conditioning coach for the SF 49ers during their highly successful era (yes, the 49ers were a highly successful organization at one time kids).  I am not sure when he started this event but every year on his birthday, he would run a mile for each year of his age.  Rest in peace coach.
