One thing I’ve learned in life is to never take time around the people you love for granted. I will be using my additional year of eligibility and will be returning HOME, to UTM for my final season. Long Live 45…my goal is to complete your mission. Mama I’m back. pic.twitter.com/EdWK1z2MWl— Parker Stewart (@_PSTEW) April 25, 2022
