Sparks, who started every game the last two seasons at UK, obviously is the team's top draw and has been a popular figure at other barnstorming games.
Spears says there are no guarantees about what other players will be with the UK seniors. However, he's been told there is a possibility the seniors could have former Cats Chuck Hayes, Erik Daniels, Marquis Estill and Anthony Epps on the roster.
"Nothing is set with the other players and may not be until game time depending on what those players have going on," Spears said.
There will be an autograph session after the game. Fans who buy merchandise on sale at the game will be able to get free autographs. There will be a $15 charge for autographing personal items not bought at the game.
"It's a business and we understand that," Spears said. "But this still gives fans a chance to see, meet and talk to the UK players."
Spears also said Boyle will not cancel any of its scheduled spring sports activities because of the game.
"That just would not be fair to our spring sports athletes," he said.
Danville's Alan Burns recently had a chance to attend the final round of the Masters in Augusta, Ga. As much fun as it was being on the hallowed course and watching the world's best golfers play, Burns was impressed more by the concessions than anything else because of the prices.
No, it was not because items were overpriced. Instead, Burns was overwhelmed by the "fairness" of the food and drink items.
"A sandwich was $1.25 or $1.50. Soft drinks were $1.25. Beer was $1.25. Bottled water was $1. You don't get bottled water at any major sporting event for a $1," he said. "They had the most reasonable concession prices I had ever seen. They were so fair that they just jumped out at you. You could not eat $6 worth of food."
And what were the two favorite sandwiches? "Pimento cheese and egg salad. Those are the traditional sandwiches, with chicken third," he said.
One more oddity. All the cups, napkins and wrappers were green. That way if someone dropped trash on the course, it blended in with the grass.
"TV cameras were not going to pick up trash on the ground because it all blended together where it was all green if there was something on the ground," Burns said.
Remember the former Kentucky wide receiver who has been desperately trying to find a spot in the NFL?
He's played overseas and in the Arena League and came close to making NFL rosters the last two years. Now maybe he's on the verge of showing someone what he can do if given a chance.
Boone was having a forgettable season in Philadelphia where he was playing more on special teams than offense. Then in late March, he was traded to Kansas City.
He's now had three straight games with at least 10 catches, 100 receiving yards and two touchdowns. In last week's 55-49 loss to defending league champion Colorado, he had 12 catches for 124 yards and four touchdowns on national TV. The week before he had five touchdown catches against Los Angeles.
In three games with Kansas City, he has 36 catches for 410 yards and 11 touchdowns. Those are numbers that have to make NFL scouts and coaches pay attention as they look for players to invite to summer training camps.
