Sparaco’s Spring

2017 quarterback Dante Sparaco talks about his new school and his very busy spring.

Few athletes are as busy as 2017 prospect Dante Sparaco.  Biggest news regarding the giant 6-4 256 pound quarterback is the fact that he and his family have moved from Glenwood Springs to Arvada where Dante will play for perennial big school power Pomona.  The move places Sparaco with his former Junior League teammate and Colorado’s top 2017 prospect, Pomona offensive tackle Jake Moretti.  Regarding the move and his new squad Sparaco says, “Coach Madden (Pomona HC) is a great guy and I'm excited to play for him and for the school. I can't wait for the season to start.”  Sparaco also had positive things to say about his Glenwood Springs coach Rocky Whitworth stating, “He is a great coach and I am sorry that I won't be able to finish my high school career with him, but I will take what I learned from him and keep working and building to help my new team as much as I can.”

Sparaco, who holds a Colorado State offer, says, “I love it up in Fort Collins.  I am so happy to have had a chance to talk with Coach Bobo, Coach Letson and Coach English.”  Sparaco also recently spoke with Colorado Head Coach Mike MacIntyre as well as Offensive Coordinator Mike Lindgren. 

The next few months are busy for Sparaco who will camp at Notre Dame, Oregon and Oregon State.  He will attend the Opening Regional in Eugen, Oregon this June and hit team camp with Pomona at Colorado State.  Sparaco has invites to camps at North Carolina, Louisville, Miami, Nebraska, Northwestern, UCLA, Texas, Stanford as well as Ivy schools and Big Sky schools.  Of this group Sparaco hopes to hit camps at Texas and UCLA. 

Sparaco is getting after it working out this offseason with quarterback coach Tim Jenkins and soon with former NFLer Matt McChesney at 60 Strength.  Over the next two seasons, look for Sparaco to pound defenses as a dual threat QB in Coach Madden’s Pomona offense behind a stout line anchored by Moretti, one of the nation’s most physical run blockers.
