Dutchtown quarterback Jared Sparks made a big decision on his future last week as he verbally committed to Southern Miss.

Sparks made the commitment after taking part in the Golden Eagles' football camp.

He is hoping to have a breakout year in 2015 as he takes over as the Griffins' full-time starting quarterback. Sparks backed up graduating senior Brandt Fritsche last year. Though he was a backup, Sparks got snaps in most of Dutchtown's games.

He's hoping he can help lead the Griffins to a resurgent season after finishing just 4-7 last year.
