Football: Carson, Simonson Sign With NFL Teams as Undrafted Free Agents
A pair of former Shore Conference standouts, Penn State linebacker Glenn Carson and Assumption College tight end Scott Simonson, will get a chance to pursue their NFL dream after signing as undrafted free agents following the conclusion of this weekend's NFL Draft.
Carson, who starred at Southern, has signed with the Arizona Cardinals. As a senior for the Nittany Lions, Carson led the team in tackles with 90, including four tackles for a loss and a sack. Carson was a two-time, first-team All-Shore selection as a linebacker at Southern, where he led the Rams to their first NJSIAA sectional final and a school-record 10 wins as a senior.
Simonson, who was a standout at Middletown South, has signed with the Oakland Raiders after a strong senior season at Division II Assumption.
The 6-5, 255-pound tight end was named as a Northeast-10 First Team All-Conference selection this past fall after leading the team with 39 receptions for 604 yards and five touchdowns.
