Gallaudet has fielded football teams since 1883. And
while many players, over the years have earned
post-season honors (All-Conference, invitations to
all-star games, playing professionally, invitations
to pro training camps, and various All-American honors),
only one player has earned All-American first team honors.
That player was Shannon Simon, who was selected to the 1987
AFCA Division III All-America first team at offensive line.
