Simeon High School's basketball team has been a constant conversation starter in barber shops all around Chicago, ever since current Chicago Bull, Derrick Rose led the team to back to back state championships in 2006 & 2007. Back then, Simeon's basketball games were something that ignited the city into a frenzy. It wasn't unusual for as many as 5,000 or 6,000 people to attend one of their games, sometimes played in college stadiums to accommodate the large crowds. This project represents a curated selection from over 6,000 photos and over 10 hours of video documented over the course of the 2011-12 season where Simeon won yet another State Title. I hope you enjoy and appreciate this team's story of hard work and dedication.
