A few years ago, we had a story on a Mariemont track & field family.  Now we have a story on a Reading soccer family.  It will start with dad.  Bill Simpson is in his 17th year as a head coach of Reading soccer.  He spent 15 years as the boys’ head coach (2004-2018) and 6 years as the girls’ head coach (2015-present).  Four of those years he was the head coach of both varsity teams.  Bill has had experience as a soccer player himself.  He went to Lakota High School (before East & West) where he was 1st Team All State player.  He still holds the career goals (63) and assists (48) records at Lakota.  Along with that, he holds the school single game record with 5 goals & 5 assists.  Simpson was inducted into the Lakota Athletic Hall of Fame in 2000.  He played college soccer at Southern California College.  Bill is a three time CHL and Southwest District Coach of the Year and was State Coach of the Year in 2015.  Soccer is definitely a family affair with the Simpsons.  Two sons and two daughters have followed dad’s footsteps, all of them at Reading.  Oldest son Kyle played for his dad from 2007-2010.  He was the CHL Player of the Year in 2010 and is a two time All State selection.  Kyle led the league in assists (27) his senior year.  He played college soccer at Mt. Vernon Nazarene University.  Fast forward to today.  Three Simpsons are currently playing varsity soccer at Reading.  Freshman Ian is a starting center mid for the boys’ team.  His twin sister Chelsea, along with Sophomore Olivia are currently in the top five in the league in points scored. Bill is currently coaching his daughters.  You might say that the fall season is a busy time in the Simpson household.  Congratulations to the Simpson family on past successes and good luck for future successes.
