Get to know some of the up and comers from the South Seven!

Rick Smith
Height: 6ft
Position: QB/OLB
Althoff Catholic High School, Belleville, Illinois

Not often do you see a QB who is willing to also take snaps at LB! You get that with Rick Smith. Smith has a lot of raw talent that can be turned into something truly specially. At quarterback he has great ball placement, knows how to sell the pass and run tremendously well, and is not afraid of a bit of contact at both of his positions of course. Smith does something that most quarterbacks have trouble doing, which is staying patient in the pocket. He allows the play to develop even when his first read is not there. Smith will take hits, avoid hits, and is still able to complete the play without scrambling!
