After retiring from football following an 11-year NFL career spent with four teams, former Kansas State linebacker Mark Simoneau hasn’t let himself go. The physical demands of his new job and its purpose haven’t allowed him to.
The former Wildcat runs the eponymous Simoneau Sports Performance center in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, KS. The center’s mission: “We will make sure you maximize your athletic potential.”
Simoneau is one of the most decorated football players to ever wear a Kansas State uniform and was a key component of the program’s success in the late 1990s. The Smith Center, KS, native was a three-year captain and a consensus First Team All-American and Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 1999. In May, he became just the second Wildcat (after Gary Spani) elected to the College Football Hall of Fame.
