Our Team




As a leader among the Area Scouts NFL Directors, Tony Simmons continues to influence the sport, focusing on youth athletes’ development and health.

Tony Simmons’ impressive career in football, both as a player and as a coach, showcases his deep involvement and contribution to the sport. His journey from a successful collegiate career at Wisconsin, where he earned the nickname “Touchdown Tony” and broke the touchdown record, to his professional career in the NFL and beyond is noteworthy. Simmons’ time in the NFL, playing for teams like the New England Patriots, Browns, Colts, Texans, and Giants from 1998 to 2003, marks a significant period in his career. Additionally, his international play in NFL Europe with the Barcelona Dragons and in the Canadian Football League with the Edmonton Eskimos (now Elks) and the BC Lions, where he achieved Grey Cup Champions status, further highlights his versatility and skill.

His induction into the Hall of Fame for St. Rita High School and the Chicago Catholic League underscores his lasting impact and contribution to football at various levels. Since 2010, Simmons’ role in coaching and playing in multiple countries has been pivotal in promoting the growth of American Football globally.
