Although born in Oklahoma, Phillippi began his education in Phoenix, Arizona, where in 1987 he matriculated from Maryvale High School. During his teenage years, he was very interested in sports, excelling particularly in American Football which he continued playing during his two-year-long tenure at Glendale Community College. In 1988 at the National Junior College Athletic Association’s championships, Phillippi Sparks had one of the key roles in Glendale Community College’s team. He continued his education and enrolled at Arizona State University in 1989, and after graduating in 1992, Phillippi Sparks’ professional American Football career officially began when he was selected as the pick No. 13 in the second round (41st overall) of the NFL Draft by the New York Giants, which was to provide the basis for Phillippi Sparks’ net worth.

Upon joining the franchise, Sparks took the position of left cornerback, and in the course of the next six years, alongside Jason Sehorn he served as the backbone of the Giants’ defensive line. This duo certainly helped the Giants to reach the NFL Playoffs in 1993 and 1997, as well as to win the 1997 NFL’s National Football Conference East Division title. All these accomplishments helped Phillippi Sparks to dramatically increase the total of his wealth.

Sparks spent a total of eight seasons with the New York Giants, leaving the franchise after the 1999 season. In the following season of 2000, Phillippi relocated to Dallas, Texas, where he signed a playing contract with the Dallas Cowboys. However, after only one season with the franchise, Sparks announced his retirement, officially ending his career on the 28th August 2001, after spending nine seasons in the world of professional American Football. It is certain that this, nine-year-long professional involvement, added a significant amount to the total of Phillippi Sparks, providing the major part of his revenues.

When it comes to the personal life of Phillippi Sparks, there aren’t many relevant details about it as he managed, despite his popularity, to keep it quite private. However, in 1989 he married Jodi Wiedmann, but they later divorced. He is the father of two children – daughter Jordin who is an acclaimed R&B musician and the winner of the sixth season of American Idol reality show back in 2007, and son Phillippi ‘PJ’ Sparks, Jr. who followed his footsteps and currently plays American Football for the Arizona Christian University.
