 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Trey Smith can't say he ever expected this. After signing with Louisville six years ago out of Madison Central High School in Mississippi, Smith's initial hopes weren't much different than those of many other Division I football players: Three years and then off to the NFL. Even when Smith arrived at the University of Wyoming in 2019 as a graduate transfer, he expected it to be a one-year pit stop before moving on. Funny how life works. Two years later, he's still at UW as a 25-year-old running back embarking on his seventh collegiate season. He's easily the oldest player on UW's roster, and his teammates rarely pass up an opportunity to remind him of that, though Smith said he's used to the good-natured ribbing at this point. "Everything I hear, I hear my age brought up in some form or fashion, so I just embrace it and try to disburse all my wisdom to all the young guys," Smith said. "I just look at it from a positive aspect."

Smith said it hasn't always been that easy to take things in stride, particularly when it comes to pursuing his ultimate goal of continuing his family's lineage in the NFL. His father, Jimmy Smith, played 13 seasons in the league and was an All-Pro receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the late 1990s. The younger Smith admitted it was a tough pill to swallow watching younger teammates at Louisville pass him by in a shorter amount of time while he was buried on the depth chart. Following a redshirt year, he got just 82 carries in three seasons with the Cardinals before leaving for UW after the 2018 season. "I feel like I was kind of getting left behind for a while," Smith said. "That just made me more motivated." - Casper Star-Tribune
