Video: Behind the Scenes with Simeon Academy

CSN’s ‘Drive’ follows the Chicago powerhouse with exclusive access.

Playing at Simeon Academy in Chicago has its perks. Not only did the team start the season as the nation’s No. 1 high school team and boasting the No. 1 player in the class in Jabari Parker, but as you’ll see in the webisodes above, noted alum Derrick Rose occasionally stops by to work out with the team. But it’s not all fun—the kids at Simeon work hard, pushed by head coach Robert Smith. CSN Chicago brings us exclusive behind-the-scenes access with the “DRIVE” series, so check back for future webisodes right here.

    Oak Hill is better, but I know Simeon is tough.
