Abram Sparks

EAST WILKES’ Abram Sparks was an All-MVAC performer, a junior last spring and reached the second round of last year’s 1A West Regional tournament in 2019.

Editor’s note: Due to the COVID-19 concerns postponing the majority of the high school sports spring seasons, the Wilkes Journal-Patriot reached out to coaches and athletic directors to have their senior spring sports athletes to fill out this form. We’ll be recognizing spring sports seniors throughout this suspension, which is set to end on May 18.
