According to my people, and I have pretty good people, P.J. Sparks has signed a letter of intent to play football for the University of North Dakota.Â At this point in his life, P.J. is probably better known as the brother of American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.Â I’m sure he’d like to carve out his own notoriety on the football field at some point. But interesting nonetheless.
P.J.’s father, Phillippi Sparks played cornerback for the New York Giants in the 90’s.Â P.J. played high school football at Mountain Ridge in Glendale, Arizona.
P.J. and Jordin’s grandfather, Jim Wiedmann, played for the Sioux in the late 60’s.
I hope Jordin makes it to the Alerus Center.Â Both in concert and in the stands to watch her brother.
