Where Are They Now: Callie Parsons

Who is she? Callie Parsons, a former outfielder for the Oklahoma Sooners.

What is she known for? Parsons was a member of the 2013 championship-winning Sooners club and was a catalyst for the club's championship run. A .291 hitter during the season, her sophomore campaign, Parsons was responsible for the game-tying double in extra innings that tied game one of the championship series, a game the Sooners would go on to win in twelve innings. For her efforts in the Sooners' five World Series games, Parsons was named a member of the Women's College World Series all-Tournament Team.

Here's something interesting... While Callie is not the only Sooner in her family, as older sister Cori attended law school at Oklahoma, Callie's grandfather played collegiate baseball at the Sooners' bitter rival Oklahoma State.

Quotable quote: "I miss the sport so much, but being away from it, I now notice and appreciate all of the little life lessons that I learned throughout my career."

What's she up to now? After the completion of her playing career, Callie achieved her degree in health and exercise science. She is currently attending nursing school at the OU College of Nursing.
