Shane Simpson, Easton HS RB/CB

This week’s player matchup will hopefully bring the excitement and big plays that we witnessed last year.  This year, Easton and Parkland high School both begin the year 1-0 and two of the premier players will go head to head.  Both will need to  have outstanding performances to give their team a shot at victory.

Shane Simpson, Easton High School

Height: 5-10

Weight: 175

Class of: 2015

Position(s): RB/CB

Number: 18

Shane rushed for 1,147 yards and 14 TD’s on only 138 carries.  He added another 295 yards and 3 scores on 17 receptions.  In the first game of the season, Shane rushed for 195 yards and 4 TD’s on 20 carries.  Look for him to impact the game in all three phases.  He is an excellent special teams player and can be lined up as a wide receiver.  When he plays defense, look for him to match up on Parkland’s top receiver.
