Gaylon Wm. Parker


Gaylon Wm. Parker was born in Steubenville, Ohio, but grew up in Jensen Beach, Fla., where his mother, Karen, still resides (and in the same house).

While he might come from The Sunshine State, Gaylon has lived all over the world, including Japan and England. He served in the U.S. Air Force at K.I. Sawyer AFB in the Upper Peninsula, and has two children: Megan, who is 31, and Logan, who is 28. Growing up with an athletic background gave him a love of sports that led to a journalism career in such places as Enid, Okla., Alamogordo, N.M., Pascagoula, Miss. and Viera, Fla. since he started writing in 1998. His main passion is small-town community sports, particularly baseball and soccer.

His field of coverage includes youth, collegiate and prep sports for all of southwest North Dakota.
