Player of the Week: UMS-Wright Symon Smith

Player of the Week

“Our line did a really good job blocking for me and my wide receivers got on their blocks,” said running back Symon Smith. “They just opened up the field for me to run”

“You know after the week off he seemed to be a bit quicker than normal,” said UMS head coach Terry Curtis. “Symon is Symon, he did this last year too. You don’t want to take something for granted but he kind of gets like that. You expect that out of him every week.”

Symon ran for 2,000 yards last year, and is on track to have another huge season this year. I call him the human bowling ball, but he’s also like iron man.

“I was really worried about his durability because of his size, going up against those guys all season. That’s the way it ended up going 15 games. He never missed a game. This year he’s even stronger, and he’s even more durable.”

UMS is currently undefeated, and looking to defend their state title.

“We’re just keeping the positive vibes going everyday. We’re having fun working together,” said Symon.
