Bio

James Torrey Smith is a wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens. In three seasons, he has established himself as the Ravens’ primary receiver, improving his receiving yard totals each season. He’s also a Super Bowl champion.

Early Life

Smith was born on January 26, 1989 in Colonial Beach Virginia. His athletic talents were initially discovered by his elementary school physical education instructor, who allowed Smith to attend his sports camps for free. He proceeded to play basketball and football at Stafford Senior High School in Falmouth Virginia. He played quarterback, running back, wide receiver, cornerback, returned kicks and punts in addition to playing the guard position on the basketball court.

Maryland Terrapins

As a college prospect, Smith was scouted as a dual-threat quarterback. After a redshirt freshman year with the Maryland Terrapins, he was presented with the challenge of focusing on the wide receiver position. He would also contribute significantly as a kick and punt return specialist. In 2008, he ranked first in kick return yards in the ACC Conference. In the subsequent year, he ranked first in the NCAA with 1,309 kick return yards. Smith increased his production each year as a wide receiver and reached 1,055 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns in his final season at Maryland. He received All-ACC first team honors as a WR before taking it to the professional level.

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens drafted Smith in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. For the benefit of QB Joe Flacco’s accurate strong arm, Smith provided a deep threat in the passing attack. The added dimension helped contribute to a Super Bowl victory in 2012. Just as he did in college, Smith has increased his production as a receiver with each following year continuing to elevate his gameplay.
