Former Lumberjack welcomed home by excited pet

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - It's been a long 10 months for former SFA Lumberjack Jacob Parker. His homecoming was made extra special when he was reunited with his best friend.

Last July, Parker signed a contract with the Slovenian champions KK Sentjur of the Telmach League. Parker just came off of one of the best seasons in Lumberjack history where he was named the Southland Player of the year.

After a long season in Europe, Parker made it home. In a video posted on the SFA athletics Facebook page, Parker can be seen resting in bed when he is greeted by his dog Koda who is extremely excited to see his best friend.
