Feb. 17, 2012
Stony Brook, N.Y. - Stony Brook head football coach Chuck Priore has announced that Leston Simpson has accepted a grant-in-aid offer to play football for the Seawolves. A native of Springfield Gardens, N.Y., Simpson will have two years of eligibility.
"Leston will help us fill some spots on the defensive line," Priore said. "We wanted to bring in some guys who have experience that can play right away, which Leston possesses."
A transfer from the University of Minnesota, Leston played in only two games in 2011, but appeared in all 12 games in 2010.
A 6-3, 255-pound defensive lineman, Simpson played one season at Lackawanna College.
Simpson starred at Campus Magnet High School, recording 57 tackles and six sacks as a senior en route to second team All-City honors.
