Mr. Simms graduated from the school of fine arts at the University of Oklahoma, majoring in sculpture and painting. He was a star performer on the Sooner track team, and set the Big Six record in the high jump and high hurdles. He also ran the mile, low hurdles and did the broad jump.

He was selected as one of the most promising students in the university, to do a sculptural design for a gateway presented by his class to the university. (info not confirmed, source newspapers.com)
