Hey there! 🌟
First and foremost, I want to extend a big, hearty "thank you" for dropping by my page. It's an absolute pleasure to connect with folks who share a passion for adventure and a thirst for challenges. So, let me introduce myself...
I'm Tony D. Simmons aka Touchdown Tony, and my journey has been a thrilling whirlwind of sports and accomplishments. 🏈🏃♂️
I kicked off my athletic career as a pro athlete, playing in various leagues, including the NFL, NFLE, CFL, Arena Football League, and European Football Leagues. Back in my college days at the University of Wisconsin, I was fortunate to be part of some championship-winning teams, earning titles like Rose Bowl Champion and Big Ten Champion in football, as well as 100m and 200m titles in track and field.
The excitement didn't stop there. I achieved the prestigious Triple Crown Champion status in track and field (cross country, indoor, and outdoor) from 1995–1997, and in '96, I proudly earned my stripes as a track and field All-American, even making my way to the Olympic Trials.
After my college days, I got drafted by the New England Patriots, where I spent three incredible years. I then ventured to NFL Europe, representing the Barcelona Dragons, before returning to the NFL with the Cleveland Browns and later the Indianapolis Colts. I also made a pit stop with the Houston Texans in their inaugural year and finished my playing career with the New York Giants.
But wait, there's more! I wasn't quite ready to hang up my cleats, so I ventured into the Arena Football League with the Indiana Firebirds, followed by a stint in the Canadian Football League with the Edmonton Eskimos. I found a home with the BC Lions, becoming one of the fastest players in the CFL and helping them secure the 2006 Grey Cup Championship. Sadly, knee injuries in '05 and '06, along with personal responsibilities, led me to step back from the game temporarily.
In 1998, I kick-started my business journey as a fitness trainer and coach. As the years rolled on, I earned my Master in Project Management in 2010 and found myself playing and coaching in the European leagues. This marked the birth of my business, now known as 6 Point Athletics. I've had the incredible opportunity to work and coach on six continents and in 40+ countries. What can I say? I've had the privilege of doing what I love—coaching, teaching, and playing sports—all while traveling the globe.
Oh, and did I mention I even had a stint coaching American football in India with the EFLI (Elite Football League of India)? Yep, you read that right! It's been a life-changing experience, helping mold the future stars of the sport in a country with an incredible population and untapped talent.
My life is a true testament to following one's passion, and for me, it's all about coaching, teaching, and making a difference through sports, fitness, and adventurous activities. I'm always on the lookout for opportunities to help others live their dream, create a legacy, and craft a life worth looking back on.
Remember, it all comes down to this equation: Correct Mindset + Motivation + Discipline = YOUR SUCCESS. 🚀
Thanks again for stopping by, and I'm thrilled to have you here on this adventure with me! 👏😊
Playing for collegiate football for the Badgers and NFL and CFL. Here are some highlights that I enjoy and made into a short memory of those achievements. Thanks to all those who followed and helped me achieve this part of my journey and life.
Competitors are divided into four teams of four, each led by a military veteran who is designated as the team's Cadre and compete in a series of Team Challenges. All members of the winning team are safe from elimination and advance to the next round, while a member of each losing team is chosen to participate in an Elimination Challenge.
The elimination continues until one contestant quits, fails the challenge, or becomes physically unable to continue, at which point he or she is eliminated from the competition. Eliminated competitors ring a ship's bell on the site before departing, after the tradition of Navy SEAL trainees "ringing out" if they choose to withdraw from the program. In the finale, the remaining competitors take part in an elimination challenge that concludes with a winner being named and receiving a $250,000 cash prize.
