Profiling this senior linebacker

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will, once again, take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully, we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2021 season.

#33 Shayne Simon, LB

Mr. Shayne Simon is an upcoming senior that has played at least a little bit in his first three seasons with the program. Last season, he came into his own more at the Rover linebacker position, but he has mainly filled in. He has had some studs ahead of him on the depth chart in recent years, but that doesn’t mean he had zero production. Last season, he played in 8 of the 12 games that the Irish played, amassing 14 total tackles. Simon is still finding his place to help out in the linebacker platoon, and he still needs to fit into the Marcus Freeman defense.

Restaurant That Fits

Stuff Yer Face

I guess this place is based in New Jersey (Shayne went to St. Peter’s Prep in NJ, alma mater of Brandon Wimbush), so this is the restaurant. I am not from New Jersey, but I found this place in a search for restaurants. They have many stromboli. Stromboli are stuffed with great ingredients, and Shayne Simon will look to stuff runners up the middle.

2021 Outlook

Shayne Simon will look to make as much of an impact as he can at whatever linebacker position he may play. There are still some older guys who might be on the first team, but he can help the squad. Again, with a new defensive coordinatior, Shayne might be plugged into a bit of a different role than in the past. He has been making some noise especially in regards to how he played during spring ball. He could line up with the likes of Bo Bauer and Drew White, but he will have to ball out even more especially to replace guys like Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah. I think he will be up to that task.
