Simon would like to thank his parents for their support in every aspect of his life. Without their support, Simon feels he wouldn’t have had the same success on the field, in the classroom and musically.
Simon would like to thank his basketball and baseball coaches, Cortez Groves, Ross Barelli, Jeff Jollife, Les Norman and Beau Franklin for helping him grow as an athlete.
He would like to thank his current baseball team, YBC, for the huge impact they’ve made in his development as a player. Simon would like to thank his basketball teammates and friends,
Davis Childs & Jeremy Moore, for pushing him to be the best he could be.
