UGA golfer Blake Parkman's father, who played football and golf at UGA in the 90s, passed away in February at age 48. Kanon Parkman was a kicker, scoring 255 career points and was known for kicking the game-winning field goal against Georgia Tech in 1995. As Father’s Day approaches, we talk about the Parkman’s father-son ties to UGA sports and how that's helping Blake get through this season.
