My name is Dante Sparaco and I am a Student Athlete. I live in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. I have learned very quickly that it takes more than just skill on the field or court to be a great athlete. You have to have great work ethic, unbelievable toughness, respect for the game, for yourself, for your teammates and coaches, and you have to be willing to put forth that same effort in the classroom. The name student- athlete is self-explanatory. Student comes before athlete. I have recognized that form a young age and have done my best to keep my grades not only average, but extraordinary. I have never received a grade lower than an A- on a report card and I am very proud of that. I am an Honors student and my current GPA is 3.85. I know that academic performance is the first thing that most coaches look at. I know that I can have all the skill in the world and still not be a productive member of my team if I am not a great student first.
I play Quarterback and Outside Linebacker. I am starting for my Varsity team this year. You can find my latest highlights in the Video section
Just like many young athletes, my dream is to play College Football. I know that I have the potential and the work ethic, but I would like football to do more for me that just make my dream come true. I want to get a quality education and I would like to use my athletic ability and my academic success to help me get there. The reason I would like a quality education is that it is something that no one can ever take away from me. If I were ever to get injured and could never play another down of football, I would still have the education that will allow me to support myself and my family.
Now you know a little bit about me as an athlete, student, and person. Thank you for your time and consideration
