Toby Sims is entering his first season with Riverhounds SC in 2022.
As a college player at Chowan, he was an All-Conference Carolinas selection all five seasons — four on the First Team. He was also a Third Team Division II All-American in 2019 and capped his career as a First Team All-American and the Conference Carolinas Defensive Player of the Year in 2021, a season in which he led the team with 11 goals.
Sims was also selected as the USL League Two Defensive Player of the Year playing with SC United in 2021. Last season, SC United conceded only 18 goals in the 13 games Sims appeared in, and the team lost just two matches on the way to a Deep South Division title and League Two playoff berth.
