Scott Simon

Scott was named to the 1992 Associated Press All-State Team and Lansing State Journal Dream Team as a running back. Scott’s freshman year was a learning experience as the fourth running back in coach Gail Thornton’s prolific and senior laden wishbone attack that ended up in the Class B state finals at the Pontiac Silverdome in1989. By Scott’s senior year, the Panthers finished undefeated only to lose to Montrose in a “mudder” in the playoffs. Scott’s senior year stats were outstanding, with 1,121 yards on 136 carries and 18 touchdowns in 10 games. He also returned 12 punts for a gaudy 14 yards per return and 5 kickoff returns for an unbelievable 222 yards, a 44 yards per return average. For his career, Scott rushed for 2,241 yards on 257 carries and ended up with 30 touchdowns. Defensively, he ended with 65 solo tackles and 47 assists and three interceptions. Scott was perhaps one of the most outstanding all around athletes in DeWitt history earning All-State recognition in baseball as well. Scott went on to play baseball at Dartmouth and was part of the first inductees into DeWitt Athletic Hall of Fame in 2008.
