Success on the basketball court has come at every stop for Ben Simmons. He led Montverde Academy to great heights as a prep player. By the time his high school career was done, he had earned the Naismith Prep Player of the Year and the Gatorade National Player of the Year awards – the highest for a high school basketball player. At LSU, he averaged a double-double in his lone season there, earning consensus First Team All-America honors at the conclusion of his freshman season. But that success hasn't come easy. The Australian native has worked tirelessly in and out of the gym to prepare himself for life in the NBA. He's a competitive leader who takes pride in his preparation, something that will surely suit him as he faces the best competition in the world in the coming years. If greatness awaits Ben Simmons, it will be because he has given everything of himself in the process of achieving it.
