When discussing the attributes of any successful mom, time management is generally priority one. Ann Simmons takes it to a whole new level. Mother of five, Ann has seen her family grow up and develop as student-athletes. Two of her sons are Lincoln Christian football players Zack and Max Simmons. Both had stellar Lincoln careers and both signed to play football at Northeastern State University.


Ann’s other son is Wes (25) and daughters Madi (16, Lincoln cheerleader) and Lindsey (22). All five children were athletes in high school and Ann was responsible for getting everyone where they needed to go. “We know that moms are all very busy, but what our mother had to do when we were all growing up is unbelievable,” said Zack. “Between my sisters cheerleading, my brothers and I playing all types of sports, and trying to run a household, mom is on top of her game.”


“Mom has chores down to an art form,” said Max. “But she raised us all in a way that we help out one another, take care of ourselves, and we use that in a team environment around the house.”


Ann was an unofficial taxi driver for the family until Wes turned 16, then it was his job to help with transportation. “With Lindsey and all of us younger kids, Wes had to help coordinate with mom,” said Zack.


Father, Robert, has helped work hard to support a great family. But it is Ann who keeps it all together. “It is so great to see the development of our kids and we owe all that to Ann. She is our family MVP,” said Max.


We know we can't compete with a mother's priceless gifts, that's why we sponsor VYPE's Mom of the Month winner. She will receive free concert tickets from us and thanks beyond measure.
