Former Kansas State Linebacker Mark Simoneau On 2012 College Football Hall Of Fame Ballot

According to SB Nation's Jason Kirk, former Kansas State Wildcats linebacker Mark Simoneau is on the 2012 College Football Hall of Fame ballot. The 10-year former pro and Super Bowl champion is the only representative for Kansas State on the ballot this season.

Simoneau played football for the Wildcats for 1996 to 1999 and in that time, made over 400 tackles and 46 tackles for loss. He was a 1998-99 All American, the 1999 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, a 1999 finalist for the Butkus Award and he is only one of two players in the history of Kansas State football to serve as team captain three different times.

After his college days were over, he was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He played three seasons in Atlanta before he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, where he played from 2003 through 2005. Before the 2006 season, he was traded again, this time to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for Donté Stallworth. He was a Saint for the next four years but was often injured as he was on IR when the Saints beat the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. He was released before the 2010 season and signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, however, after being injured once again on Nov. 17 of the 2010 season, he announced his retirement from the NFL.

If Mark Simoneau is inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, he would join Gary Spani as the only two former Kansas State Wildcats to share the honor.
