With his team on the verge of the playoffs, Smith is looking to help his team repeat as State Champions. The Ely football team has only lost once this year and that was to Saint Thomas Aquinas. Ely did have a big win a few weeks back against one of the better teams in Broward County Deerfield Beach. They are led by quarterback sensation Brent Schaffer.
"When we played Deerfield, Schaffer was without a doubt the best player we faced all year. On one play he ran 15 seconds off the clock running around and than he made a great throw which he completed."
Smith has decided to take a visit to Tennessee with Schaffer after the season's over. "Yeah we talked about visiting Tennessee together, he wanted me to go to Auburn with him but they are not recruiting me," he said. "We have also decided to play in the Dade/Broward All-Star game this year and his coach Redman will lead us."
One visit that Smith has set up is in November to Pittsburgh. "I will be going there for the UM/Pitt game on November 29th. I am excited to go up there and see what its like at a home game for the Panthers. It should be exciting to watch them go against UM," he said. "My teammates Brandon Daniel and Corey Sanders will go up to the game with me."
