Simmermon looks back fondly on his formative years and his time at RCHS. Knowing that all records are eventually eclipsed, he still is proud of the longevity of the scoring record. Equally important to note is that before it became a catch phrase years later, Simmermon was a student – athlete and he graduated in the top 92 percent of his class.
“Basketball has been very good to me. I think, more than anything, it allowed me to develop a work ethic that I was true to. What I learned through basketball is that it’s easy to work or play hard when someone is looking, but it’s how hard are you willing to work when you are by yourself and no one is looking that’s more important and I tried to do the right thing - hopefully I did.”
