Kansas State's Mark Simoneau Calls College Football Hall Of Fame Induction 'An Unbelievable Honor'

He has gone down as one of the greatest Wildcat football players ever, but Mark Simoneau was not just a star at Kansas State. Instead, his college career is going to be heralded for all-time as one of the newest members of the College Football Hall of Fame.

Announced as part of the 2012 class yesterday, Simoneau released a statement through K-State to talk about what he calls an “unbelievable honor.”

“This is truly an unbelievable honor for me, my family, the town of Smith Center and all of the K-State Nation,” said Simoneau. "I want to thank Coaches Barta and Snyder and all of the coaching staffs over the years for instilling in each of us the resolve to be successful not only as football players but also as young men.

“There are so many friends and teammates that were influential in my development and more importantly the success of our teams during my time at K-State. Representing those teams from the 1990s that put K-State Football in the national spotlight and also being the first player under Coach Snyder to be elected to the Hall of Fame is truly humbling.

“As a small town kid from Smith Center, Kansas, I never could have dreamed of such an honor, but it shows that with hard work and a dream, anything is possible.”
