Jordan-Elbridge senior basketball standout Jeremiah Sparks is NewsChannel 9’s Athlete of the Week.
Sparks has loved basketball since he was in third grade and also plays key roles on the school’s football and track teams as well.
Sparks is coming off a 1,000 yard rushing season with 15 total touchdowns and, on the court, is averaging just over 30 points per game — improving on his 20 points per game mark his junior year.
The multi-sport student-athlete is hoping to lead his Eagles to a sectional title after a second round loss to Cazenovia just last year.
“I definitely think we’re all in it to win it,” Sparks said. “I think there’s nothing short of sectionals. We all believe we can making it. We all believe that we can win it, so (we) just got to do it.”
