A junior at Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, MA, Tim Simoes has been a part of the Nokona Baseball organization for the past three years. Tim is a key contributor on the 2016 17U Prospect Team, where he bats third and shines in the middle infield. He is a standout both in the classroom and on the baseball diamond. Ranking very high in his class at an ultra-competitive high school, Tim has worked extremely hard to prepare himself for college.
Tim was a key contributor on the Xaverian baseball team this past season, where they reached the State Super 8 tournament. He has also played forward on Xaverian's varsity hockey team since he stepped on campus as a freshman. For Nokona Baseball, he has been the quiet leader on a team full of big personalities. Tim leads by his incredible work ethic and the way he carries himself both on and off the field. He made an immediate impact on our program—from the moment he put a Nokona jersey on—by lifting the level of how hard his teammates practiced, and raising the bar on the need to always improve their skills. His hard work paid off this past summer as he was named to the All-Tournament Teams for both the PG Super25 and the PG Evoshield Classic.
Above all, the word to best describe Tim Simoes is "class." He is a class-act in every sense of the word. One of the most respectful young men one could ever hope to coach, he carries himself with dignity, pride and humility, and any coach who has worked with him cannot help but respect Tim. He treats teammates, coaches, officials and opponents with such reverence that they can only view him in the same light. Tim plays the game the way it is meant to be played, and honors it completely.
Tim has been awarded the Freshman Student of the Year and the All-School Humility Award during his first two years at Xaverian—both of which are tremendous honors at a prestigious high school, and well deserved. And, the best is yet to come for Tim; he is a highly recruited ballplayer who will make the most of any opportunity given to him, as he takes nothing for granted.
