American college lacrosse coach

Roy Simmons Jr. has done it all for the Syracuse University men's lacrosse team—he's served as ballboy, mascot, player, freshman coach, assistant coach and, from 1970 to 1998, varsity head coach. Simmons was born into all of these roles. His father, Roy Simmons Sr., served as a coach for the Orangemen for forty-five years prior to his son's taking over the team. The legacy continues to this day. Simmons Jr.'s son, Roy Simmons III, is an assistant to John Desko, who assumed head coaching duties when Simmons Jr. retired in 1998.
