Don't Miss

Let's get happy …

Three more years! Three more years!

Happy belated birthday to D.J. Smith, who turned 19 years old yesterday.


JOB: Breaking into the starting linebacker slot as a freshman, and keeping SoCon QBs awake at night for the next three years.

KEY STATS: Became a starter seven games into his college career and notched a team season-high 16 tackles against The Citadel. He also stole a Bulldog pass and took it back 23 yards to six-land. He was the SoCon Defensive Player of the Month after a 14-tackle job against UTC.

REASON TO LOVE HIM: He’s a habitual champion, finishing five consecutive football seasons with a title. Prior to Histor3, he helped Charlotte Independence to four straight state championships.

BIRTHDAY WISH: Surpassing the Dexter Coakley legacy.

SUGGESTED GIFT: A LSU embroidered tackling dummy.
