Smith Holds Two

The sleeper wide receiver prospect from Coppell (Texas) High has two scholarship offers in hand...

After an injury plagued junior year, Cameron Smith, a 6-foot-0, 175-pound wide receiver from Coppell (Texas) High has been one of the most productive players in the DFW as senior in 2012.

He is sixth in the area in receiving with 803 yards and 13 scores. He has recently shed his sleeper status with scholarship offers.

"Here recently has added some offers," informed Coppell Head Coach Joe McBride. "Illinois and North Texas"

"I am pretty satisfied, but I try not to take anything for granted. I need to keep working and I don't see this as the end of it, so I have to keep going."

Smith says that he looks up to former Cowboy teammate Jacob Logan for inspiration. Logan lost his life in October in a cliff diving accident, and the team has dedicated its season to his memory.

"Jacob Logan. Number 21. He is definitely the person I look up to and pattern my game after," Smith explained.

"Jacob was the most competitive person you will ever know. He would never let you win. He was always trying to beat you. He was definitely a good role model for me, for sure."

With two offers in the bag things have picked up for Smith on the recruiting front.

He reports Schools like Stanford, Memphis, TCU and Texas Tech are also still actively recruiting him, but is trying to take care of business for his high school team before diving too much in to the recruiting process.

"Hopefully it will keep going, but that is not my focus right now," Smith informed. "I want to win the State Championship."

"We just have to look at it one game at a time and know that we are going to have to earn it when we come out."

"It's not going to be given to us. We got to keep working even when its is hard and the days are a grind."
