FASST Elite Week 2 Player Profiles


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.

Eli Redmond, Parkland HS RB/CB

Height: 5-8

Weight: 170

Class of: 2014

Position(s): RB/CB

Number: 1

Eli Redmond is another dynamic player.  Last year he rushed for 1,008 yards and 12 TD’s while averaging 6.9 yards per carry.  He is an exceptional special teams performer who has several return TD’s and is Parkland’s top performer in the secondary.  He has the capability to turn the game around in a blink of an eye and has taken several interceptions to the house during his career.  A player like this will be tough to contain.
