Who is Parker Moore?

Parker started his football career with the WJFA as a Rookie where he was able to grow into an incredible young man on and off the field of play.  Parker was a leader and amazingly conscientious young man who positively affected so many lives in our community.  He will be so sorely missed but we will make sure his spirit lives on within our program.  

In Parker's honor and under his name, WJFA created a scholarship fund that provides financial assistance to those in need for participation in football.  As we have heard from all of the people he has touched during his life, Parker had a "Team First" attitude.  We hope that in doing this, others can have the same outlook and experience he would have wished upon for all of his teammates and future Falcons.

Falcons to Honor Parker Moore

June 2015

By Derek Johnson

Sports Writer for The Woodinville Weekly

Head Coach Wayne Maxwell has created a new award that will annually honor the former Falcon Parker Moore. Last November, Moore, 20, was stabbed several times at a 7-Eleven near Linfield College in Oregon. He later died at a Portland Hospital. He had been a sophomore linebacker on Linfield's football team, and majoring in business management. Back in his Woodinville Days, he served as a profound influence on everyone around him.

When spring practice ends later this month, Maxwell will award Moore's #44 jersey number to one of the current Falcons. The selected player will then wear it throughout the 2015 season. The award will now be given in perpetuity each spring.

"With the loss of a great Falcon, we're looking to honor Parker and his legacy to our program," Maxwell said. "To recognize one of the members of our team who is doing the right things on and off the field. There are three main characteristics we're looking for in awarding the number 44 jersey. We're looking for a kid who is playing the game with great intensity and effort, just like Parker did. To play the game with such physicality as an imposing football player, from snap-to-whistle, that's what we're looking for. Secondly, we're looking for great generosity, extending a hand to help others... And third is leadership. Someone who is a great leader on and off the field, leading by example, vocally as well. Being that type of role model all the guys in the program can emulate"

When Parker Moore graduated from Woodinville, he handed the #44 jersey down to Dylan Axelson. Axelson wore the number during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. He's currently donning a different number.

"It meant a lot to wear that number originally," Axelson said. "And it would mean so much more to wear it again."
