Smith Wants To Put Gators On Top
Lake Cormorant wide receiver Brandon Smith has racked up 126 receptions for 2,163 yards and 22 touchdowns in his career as a Gator. He caught 78 of those this past season. He has one final season of high school ball left and he believes that it will be the best yet for him and his teammates.
Smith and the Gators have been active this summer working on their game at every opportunity they can find.
“It’s been busy,” Smith told SES Mississippi. “We’ve been going to team workouts, camps and 7-on-7’s. It’s all going well.”
Smith is 6-3, 205-pounds and is about as athletic as a player can be at the wide receiver position. He has been spending time this summer making himself even more difficult to defend.
“I have been working on getting in and out of my breaks better and being quicker in my routes,” Smith said.
Smith says he has been putting in extra time with the quarterbacks Dakotah Logan, Will Guest and Ben Rohrbacher this summer as well.
“I can call them any day and he will meet up with me at the school and throw,” Smith explained. “We really think we have a good chance of going undefeated this season.”
The Gators went 7-6 this past season including a 4-3 record in one of the most competitive districts in the state. Smith says when he looks at the schedule for this coming season, two dates really stand out above the rest.
“West Point and Oxford because they have been the most dominant teams in our district for the longest,” Smith declared. “It’s time for that to change.”
If the Gators can make a push to dethrone teams like Oxford and West Point it will be in large part to the play of Brandon Smith.
