Simon, from page 1D referred to moved on to other schools for the spring semester, and after some deliberation, Simon decided to return to the Cougars. "Lassen College prepared me to move on. They provid- ed me with discipline, tougher competition and they showed me how to grow as a person. I learned how to handle myself on and off the field," Simon said. Next year when Simon attends Texas Tech, he is going to fight for a spot in the starting rotation. "D.J. has a tremendous future and his work ethic is tremendous as well," LCC head coach John Bentley said. Simon said he hopes to ful- fill his role on the team this year and get Lassen back to the playoffs. "The team this year is night and day compared to last year. We have some good kids to play with, who want to learn more and don't want tomess up," Simon said. Simon added if you play baseball in Lassen County, coming to Lassen College is a good way to get exposed. "This is a superb program to come play at," simon said. Simon is currently one of 16 players from the Lassen Collegebaseball team this year that are moving on to play at either the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I, Division II, or National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics next year. "It is a credit to the aca- demic success at Lassen College. The kids are able to further themselves baseball- wise by going to class," Avila said. This year's team is differ- ent from last season's team, on and off the field. Each of the 42 players on the team are on the same page, they are respectful and everyone has the same goal, Bentley said. "They are students first and foremost. They have to represent themselves and the institution." Bentley said. Bentley and Avila both said that you cannot make your- self vulnerable to bad influ- ences and that the success the kids have in the class- room carries on over to the baseball field. "D.J. is a poster child of our program. He does well in the classroom and on the field," Bentley said. In the last two seasons, Lassen had seven players continue their education and play baseball at the next level, including Danny Brown at Oklahoma State University, Bryan Visser at Dickinson State University, Curtis Russell at New Mexico Highlands University. "This is just a stepping stone for them socially, aca- demically and physically on the field," Bentley said.
