The article “Honoring a Legacy,” discusses Simon’s lasting contributions as a beloved professor, coach, and authority on sports ethics. He was the author of Fair Play: Sports, Values and Society, and named one of the 100 Most Influential Sports Educators by the Institute of International Sport. 

The new PGA-quality golf practice facility “has been a game-changer for our golf programs,” said men’s and women’s golf coach Lauren Cupp. “Now every time we practice and speak the Simon name, we will remember his legacy.”
