Rick and O'Neil
It was so much fun to spend a few minutes with O'Neil Simmons, who like myself is a former Michigan City Red Devil. He was a key member of the 1966 State Championship team. O'Neil lived one street over from me in our Eastport neighborhood in Michigan City. He was five years older than me, and was one of the people I respected, admired, and modeled my career after. Vernon Payne was the player by which were were all measured, but O'Neil was my childhood hero.
