2017 WR Ricky Smalling Big in Opener

Some players tend to be a little rusty week 1 of the high school football season, but not 2017 WR Ricky Smalling, whose 3 touchdowns led his team to a season-opening rout of their counterpart school in Michigan.

It was an impressive day for 2017 WR Ricky Smalling of Chicago (IL) Brother Rice.  The talented receiver got open all day and hauled in three touchdowns to help lead his team to victory.

After the game, IlliniInquirer spoke with Smalling about his performance and caught up with him about his progress this offseason that led to today's effort.
