Realsportsrealtalk Midweek Commentary : Willie Simmons has PVAMU , a team to be reckoned with…….

Willie Simmons seems like a man who has something to prove. The former Clemson Tiger has taken the medecore Panthers and transformed them into a force to be reckoned with in SWAC. With huge wins at Southern 47-42 and at Texas Southern 38-11 to start the season, the only blemish is to league leading Grambling State 70-56. Coach Simmons has instilled the will to win and also his read option offense has been putting up points like no other. QB Trey Green and RB Johnta Hebert has benefited from the new offense as both players have been named SWAC players of the Week a few times. Simmons, a Tallahasse native was an All American himself in high school after posting huge numbers like 6,000 yards of total offense as an QB. Simmons went on to become one of Clemson’s better players in the record books. He graduated in three years which shows that he was a student of the game also. After a few stops which included Middle Tennesse State University, Jay Hopson hired Simmons to run his offense and turn a once doormat program , Alcorn State ,  into a winner. Well, Simmons went to work and with QB John Gibbs , the Braves were putting up points as well as winning games. Last season, Simmons offense caught fire as the Brave mowed down the entire SWAC with the exception to a rainy day loss at Grambling. The Braves went on to win the 2014 SWAC Championship as they defeat Southern University for the second time 38-24 in Houston. Simmons was later hired as Head Coach at PVAMU and after installing his offense, the Panther haven’t looked back. Willie Simmons has won over the PVAMU faithful and now has the Panthers in contention of the 2015 SWAC Championship. With tough road games this weekend at Alcorn State and next weekend at Alabama State, it could be a challenge that Simmons has been looking for. For A.D. Ashely Robinson , picking up Simmons was a steal exspecially from SWAC Champ Alcorn State. Simmons not only defeated former head coach Hice Northern, now D.C. at Texas Southern 38-11, they humilated them on their home turf. For Robinson, that win signified Simmons hire as a great one. Many older Panthers like the hire as well. They say that Simmons is smart and has what it akes to take the Panthers to the top. Willie Simmons…..a man to be reckoned with…………
