Darren Sproles was born June 20,1983 in Waterloo, IA to parents Annette and Larry Sproles. Sproles came into this world weighing 10 pounds, inspiring his family to give him the nickname “Tank”. Years later, at only 5’6”, the NFL's record holder for single-season all-purpose yards (a combination of running, receiving and kick-returning) is best described as one of the league's shiftiest, most deceptively strong players. Sproles, previously graduated and played college football at Kansas State University where he is the all-time leading rusher, and was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He also played for the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles.
After 15 successful NFL seasons Sproles finally hung up his cleats in 2020. Although newly retired on the field, he is still working with the Eagles organization off the field as a Personnel Consultant. Darren enjoys spending time with his wife Michel and their three daughters Brianna, Devyn, and Rhyan. He is looking to enjoy his NFL post career by Coaching, and developing a podcast focusing on topics including sports, family, and entrepreneurship. Sproles also enjoys golfing and traveling.
