Quarterback Cade Sparks has come into his own while leading Summit High School during an undefeated football season after the first eight games on the schedule.
Sparks has thrown for over 1,900 yards and 32 touchdowns this season with an offense loaded with talented play makers.
“He has probably made an audible on 10 of those 32 touchdown passes,” said Nick Matheny, coach of the Skyhawks. “He just remains cool, calm and collected.”
Sparks believes the chemistry between his receivers and himself are what allows for the offensive audibles be to successful.
“I attribute my confidence totally to my receivers. We have worked hours on end,” Sparks said. “I know that if I give them an audible they will make a play. All I need to do is put the ball where it needs to be.”
Sparks not only shows leadership on the field but in the classroom. He maintains a 3.9 GPA during the football season.
“I discipline myself in my studies. I am not an ‘athlete student,'” Sparks said. “My studies come first, I hold myself to a high standard. I want to be as successful as I can be in all aspects of my life.”
Summit will look to continue its winning streak when the Skyhawks play Kaiser at 7 p.m. Friday in Sunkist League action. The game will be held at A.B. Miller High School.
