Possible Football Recruit

The name Pat Simonds came across my email with this article. Pat is a high school senior from Sydney, New York that is playing wide receiver in the state quarterfinals this weekend. Pat has 39 catches, 782 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. Here's the quote of interest:

Opposing coaches aren’t the only eyes on Simonds, a three-sport standout at
Sidney. Division I college football coaches have expressed interest, and Simonds
said football is likely his game of choice in college.

Syracuse, Michigan State and Maryland have shown interest, said Simonds, who’s also considering Colgate, Lehigh and James Madison. Although the last three have lower-profile Division I football teams, Simonds said he might choose that path in exchange for the possibility more playing time.

I know who I'd like to win that recruiting battle.


  • Pat Simonds would be a great addition to Colgate football, but it looks like the competition that we are up against is tough. The fact that he might want to try the Colgate, Lehigh, etc. route could work to our advantage.

    The coaching staff has been great recruiters in the past, let's hope that they can convince this youngster to come to Colgate.

    As an aside, Colgate looked good again in both women and men's hockey knocking off Robert Morris and Dartmouth. Good to be able to see a report on New Hampshire's channel 9 reviewing the Colgate win over Dartmouth.

    Colgate is not as yet a household word here in New Hampshire.

  • Simonds had 3 catches for 97 yards, including a 49-yarder for a TD and a two-point conversion in Sidney's 41-13 rout of General Brown in the Class C state quarterfinal Saturday at Endicott's Ty Cobb Stadium. Sidney is ranked second in the state and now goes against Marcus Whitman in the semi-finals at the Carrier Dome. Let's hope we can get this kid.
