For many football players, a starting spot on Varsity football is the goal. However, for junior Alex Simi, being the MVP is the ultimate goal.

“Honestly I wasn’t expecting it, it was one of those things where you just don’t know who’s going to get it,” explained Simi.

Many players on the team, including Simi, expected it to be one of the 4 captains or a senior as it was there last season. Although, the star junior played both offense and defense and put in massive amounts of hard work and overtime to win the award.

“I didn’t even think it to be me. My coaches and teammates say that I won this award for my leadership and dedication to the team. I played both sides of the ball offense and defense at two critical positions, and I was a play maker that made plays when we needed too in big situations,” Simi continued.

This is the mindset of a true team leader, someone who does his job and expects no recognition in return. A player who is willing to put the work in day in and day out to win games, put points on the board, and leave everything on that field.

“After accepting all of the congratulations and seeing the impact I made without realizing it, it opened my eyes and made me want to push myself harder so I can win it again.” exclaimed Simi.

Goals have been set and bars have been raised for a future captain of the team and the one and only MVP, Alex Simi. As a leader, teammates should look up to you especially the younger players and winning MVP is setting the right example.

“I’m ready to lead the team and the school into a better season, to do better than we did this year.” remarked Simi.

Next year will be Simi’s, as well as many other talented players on the team, last year and everyone is hoping to leave on a high note. That being said, for all players next season started on that final buzzer.

All in all, Varsity star Alex Simi was very humble about winning MVP and deserved it as well.  He is a star player on both sides of the ball and and good student in the classrooms.
