Video — UW safety Sean Parker

Saturday’s game at USC marks a homecoming for roughly 35 UW players who are from the general Southern California area.

Among those is safety Sean Parker, who could have stayed home to play for the Trojans, having been seriously pursued by USC before deciding on signing day in 2010 to come to UW, instead.

He made his first homecoming last year when UW beat the Trojans 32-31. But then he was mostly a special teams player. Now, he’s UW’s starting strong safety and second-leading tackler with 58.

“It makes it that much more exciting to go back home to play in a stadium like that and in a game like that, in general,” he said.

He admits to being a USC fan growing up and attending five or six games as a fan. He also admits to enjoying having bragging rights — if briefly — over a few of his friends who play for the Trojans.

“It was fun for that moment,” he said. “But now we’ve got to go down there and win it back.”

You can see Parker talk more about returning to LA, his decision to sign with UW instead of USC, and his friendship with Trojan receiver Robert Woods — a friend since childhood after the two played youth football together — in the video below:
