Injuries can't slow Lewisburg star


DANVILLE — One more time

In his final time around as a Green Dragon, Smith hopes to be able to experience that thrill several more times.

The Green Dragons are 5-1 and in a battle for a home game in the District 4 Class AA playoffs, as well as a shot at the Heartland Athletic Conference Division II championship.

“The biggest reason that I want to advance as far a we can is that I get that many more games. I don’t want to end my high school career just yet and I am going to be working hard to get a few more wins so that we can be solid as far as getting into the playoffs. After that we are just going to go as far as we can and have fun.”

He added that winning titles are great, but just playing the game is what he will remember most.

And sharing his beliefs.

New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow has grabbed a lot of headlines, along with plenty of ridicule, for sharing his beliefs.

Smith knows he does not have a stage that big, but, he said, “At this point in my life as far as I can deduce, that’s definitely a calling that I have and already my athletic career has given me a chance to share my faith and be open about it.”

He added, “It’s something I’ve been blessed with and I definitely want to continue doing that as long as my athletic career lasts.”
