SAVANNA — Quarterbacks facing the 4-0 Savanna Bulldogs should form a club. Call it the “Jimmy Sparks Intercepted Me” Club.
It’d be a sad club to be part of, but at least no one would be lonely. Because as each new team faces Savanna and its shutdown strong safety, each new quarterback pays a price for trying to move the ball through the air.
“He’s just a ball hawk,” Savanna coach James Bond said. “He knows how to make a play on it, judges it well.”
Sparks has already recorded six interceptions this season. Based on statistics available at both the Tulsa World and Daily Oklahoman websites, that makes Sparks the state leader in any class in interceptions.
