Seth Smith had never played varsity football at this point a year ago, but on Tuesday the Lion senior signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the Texas A&M-Commerce Lions.

Smith returned to the sport after three years away and became Ennis’ top offensive player in 2010, earning second team all-district honors at receiver. He had several large statistical games and it eventually led to a four-year scholarship offer with A&M-Commerce. A couple of months before his senior season, Seth began to believe he could do something special.

“During 7-on-7 football last summer, I really felt like I was doing good and that I really wanted to go to college for this,” Smith said. “I also felt like this could actually happen at that point because I was working hard.”

While Smith recognizes his path to college football was unconventional, he only cared that there was a path.

“This was my first-and-only season on varsity, so I felt like I really had to perform the best I could,” Smith said. “I didn’t have a junior season to back me up and I had a short amount of time to get a lot of work done.”
