I would like to publicly announce that I am going to continue my athletic and academic scholarship at the University of Minnesota. It was a huge mountain I had to climb to get to this point. But now that I am at the top of this mountain, I can look out and see greater mountains that I desire to climb. I am extremely excited for what lies ahead of me and couldn't be more grateful for the opportunities this sport has brought me. GO GOPHERS! . . . @gopherwrestling @gophersports
Sparks knocked off previous No. 2 Cael Valencia (St. John Bosco) to win a state championship at 160 pounds. He won a title at Battle for the Belt and placed third at the Doc Buchanan. Sparks finished the season ranked No. 11 nationally at 160 pounds.
