Nice story on walk-on OL Allen-Michael Simcox

Allen-Michael Simcox was just about fed up with football.

In his four years at Sullivan Central, the Cougars won all of four varsity games, including zero during his last high school season in 2011. “My senior year was pretty rough,” Simcox said.

But Mamaw didn’t teach Simcox to be a quitter.

By the time Simcox’s grandmother, Frances Roberts, died in March 2012, Simcox was pretty well set on attending the University of Tennessee, albeit just as a student.

In the weeks after her death, though, something started to nag at Simcox. “She always supported me in athletics and everything like that,” he said. “I knew she would be very disappointed in me if I didn’t at least try to be on the team and make an effort.”

Yeah I had a class with him this past fall semester and he was always in class and participating. He seemed to be a gentle giant imo, but he would always come in talking about how he was getting slobber-knocked by the first team Defense. Hope everything works out in his favor.

Ok dude. I just can't leave you hanging like this. People are going to continue to have a field day with you until you fix this post.

Do NOT put the bolded in a sentence if you are going to completely slaughter the rest of the sentence.

Oh yeah, and it is fulfills....not full feels.

Just trying to save you some grief.
