have moved their show Sports Syndicate to Rock Deep Media in the District of Columbia at the NFL Players’ Association headquarters.

From the owner Rocky Parrish to their association with the NFLPA, Sparks said he is excited about the whole endeavor taken.

“The transition has been great and we’re learning a lot more,” Sparks said. As a team, Sparks said the staff has been really helpful.

When the Sports Syndicate show first started, Sparks compared the show to friends at a sports bar in discussion about athletes and teams. The show was a hit with fans, Sparks said, but with the change in venue has increased their fan base and adds them to lineup of personalities on the NFLPA network.

By last March, the co-host said the duo have done at least six shows thus far including interviews with pro tackle Brandon Albert, Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller and some top of the nation’s top journalists and analysts.

During their opening night, several individuals from the Colonial Beach community came up to show their support including his former coach Jeremy Jack and Northern Neck Wall of Fame honoree Steve Swope.

Sparks is a 2004 graduate of Colonial Beach High School where he became an award winning lineman on the football team. He then played two seasons at Bridgewater College before sustaining a knee injury. Sparks went on to graduate in 2008 and major in business management and minor in marketing.

He then returned to his college and high school to coach for  a couple of years.

Sparks said he is active in his support of the Colonial Beach community and surrounding counties.

The show and other similar shows can be heard online at www.rockdeepmedia.com on Mondays from 7-9 p.m. or on the app called TuneIn Radio.
