Arizona State University baseball assistant coach Andy Stankiewicz was on hand at Mohave Middle School in Scottsdale on Friday, October 9, to be a part of Sparky's Tour. Stankiewicz, a fourth-year assistant with the Sun Devils and seven-year Major League Baseball veteran, joined Sparky and the spirit squad to discuss with the students the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and tending to their educations.
Sparky's Tour will continue to feature ASU coaches, administrators and student-athletes emphasizing the importance of education, and that everyone has the ability to be successful if they work hard, focus and follow the rules. Coaches and student-athletes have been through the same struggles that current students face. Utilizing speakers that students can relate to reinforces what teachers and administrators are helping their students to learn.
