The accolades for Summerville (SC) kicker Allen Smith continued to roll in last fall. Smith was named to the AAAA All-State team, with 47 of 48 PATs and 10 of 14 on field goals, with a long of 51 yards, as a junior. While the colleges are not quite ready to offer Smith, he has several schools on his list.

"I am a big Virginia Tech fan, and I want to go there," says the 5-foot-8, 160 pounder. "Louisville and Illinois are probably my favorite right now though. Illinois is sending me the most mail."

While Smith is looking out-of-state, he says he is open to staying closer to home.

"I would like to go to South Carolina, but I heard they never offer kickers, so that is why I have been looking out of the state."

Among his favorite schools, Smith lists Illinois, Virginia Tech, Louisville, South Carolina, Texas A & M, Wisconsin, and Washington State.
