“I believe what I do best is catching the ball, hitting, read and react,” Roseville athlete Gary Smith III said to Northstar Football. “I'm a game changer and I'm physical player that don't shy away of any contact like that's why I play football is to hit someone. My season last year went great. It started out a little slow but middle of season I start to have big games and made a lot of plays. I won all section last season and won all district sophomore and junior. I been lifting and working out with my football team and my trainer. I'm looking to improve on route running and making quicker cuts because to be a better wide receiver you got to run good routes to be open and to break out.”
Expectations are higher for Smith after transferring to Roseville this offseason.
“My expectations for this season is to make a lot of plays and be the best player for my team,” Smith explained. “That's to make plays and I want to make a big impact in 6A, I'm ready to play with the big dogs and as a team we want to compete every game and to make a run in the playoffs. Everyone is hungry and not satisfied where we at and we work as a team to get better everyday.”
