Simon has been a starting midfielder for Eagan Wildcats since he was a freshman. Long and athletic at 6’4, he’s one of those players who looks like he is going half-speed but yet pulling away from everyone when he runs. He is a do-it-all midfielder who does not shy away from playing in the defensive end, sniffing out tough ground balls, or getting involved in the clearing game. I once saw him cause a turnover playing 1v1 defense, pick up a ground ball on his own end, single-handedly punt return clear the ball, set up a dodge, beat his man, and score with a shot on the run. He’s one of those players who is so athletic that he can play any role in any scenario, and Eagan will lean on him more this year with the graduation of a few of their other top scorers from 2023. Posting 36 goals and nine assists along with 39 groundballs a year ago, I’d expect him to carry a large workload on offense and continue to use his athletic gifts to thrive in the uptempo system they run at Eagan.
