Coach Collins on Sparks
"Will has already stepped in and added Sparks to the lineup this year. The Knoxville native is one of the hardest workers on the team and leads by example. Will comes to the team with a solid USTA tournament background. He possesses an attacking all-court game and is a dynamic doubles player. I see Will playing at #2/3 singles and #2 doubles. Adding him to an already talented team could be the final piece of the puzzle that puts the Railsplitters on top of the SAC at the end of the season."
