    There are many die hard LaRue County Hawks basketball fans around the state but one would be hard pressed to find one any more committed than Sprowles. He is a 1992 graduate of LaRue County High School and the son of long-time and retired teachers from the LaRue County School system, Donald and Nancy Sprowles.
