The fifth-year senior completed his comeback becoming a captain of the 2017 team. In the summer of 2014, many would have doubted that Sprinkle would have been apart of the team in 2017. For him to become a captain says a lot about how he turned his life around. Sprinkle played in all 14 games of the 2017 season, became a leader of the team and recorded 16 tackles and 3 tackles for loss. He was picked up by the Panthers as an undrafted free agent in April of 2018 and later signed with Alliance of American Football in January of 2019. In April, Sprinkle signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.
May Sprinkle's future become a torrent.

Good morning, GTH.
Sorry for the delay this morning. Took the kids to Cedar Point Wednesday night and yesterday. Great time, but did not get home until well past midnight last night.
Absolutely no worries, Matt. Your Countdowns are a labor of love, but doubtless a far distant second to the love you have for your family.
Vic Janowicz used to work out at a fitness club I worked at in the early nineties. Very nice and humble man. He kindly signed a book on Ohio State football for me.
Cleveland Indians PR director Bart Swain is an Elyria HS graduate, as well.
At first I thought this said, "in MY early nineties." I was thinking, "good on you for hanging out so long working in the gym. How old are you now???"
The wonders of paying attention never cease.
You Got Barbecue Back There!?!?!?!
Well, the real Floyd Stahl would've turned 120 yesterday on July 18. In the 1990's he was indeed in his nineties, as he was born in 1899!
Les Miles went to Elyria HS, well that explains why he understands how to play football. I love this series because you always learn something new and exciting with each team. Les Miles dad was named Bubba, well that explains the grass eating. I didn’t realize Vic Janowicz was from Elyria, they have had some good players come through that school.
Tony Curcillo was a 1948 graduate of EHS who happened to be a starting QB at Ohio State in 1950 and 51. He was Woody Hayes 1st starting QB at OSU. He later played in the NFL and CFL.
