Senior Standout: Devan Goode, Simms

Posted: Updated:
SIMMS - "He's irreplaceable to be honest with you because he's so great as a leader."

Devan Goode is more than good. He's one of Simms best 2-way players and the leader of the Simms football team.

"Devan brings it every day. No matter what day it is or how he's feeling, he comes and is ready to go as soon as he gets here," said Erik Pschernig, Simms Junior WR.

"He's athletic, has good skills, all state linebacker, and first team all conference linebacker. And he's going to get the ball a little bit more this year so it's going to be pretty good. He's a really really good player and ride his leadership this year and see how far we can go" said Eric Dirk, Simms Tigers head football coach.

Devan embraces the challenge of leading his team but he's also responsible for upholding a family tradition. His dad and uncles played for the Tigers before him and the legacy lives on with Devan.

"It's been pretty cool. You get to know the people that your dad played with and they follow you around but it also means that you're trying to make them proud and make your family proud but you're also playing to the best of your abilities every day," said Devan Goode, Simms senior.

Devan's become a versatile football player, playing both offense and defense. But he's also a well-rounded student who has a plan for his future.

"I'm looking to go into sports medicine or something like that after high school so I'm looking more into the sciences, the maths, and anatomy and physiology classes," said Goode.

Devan says he wants to continue playing football after high school and if he keeps up the hard work and leadership, a coach should find a place on the roster for an irreplaceable type kid.
