Adam Smith WR/DB (5’10” 186 Guilford College) is a local Mocksville product, playing first for Davie High School where he played a season at DB before moving to QB and becoming the first quarterback to throw for 1,500 yards and run for 500 in the same season in Davie High School history.  Smith also lettered in four years in track and was recognized as all-conference as a hurdler. He was recruited at QB for Guilford College but was moved to WR in camp and went to lead the team with 65 receptions for 874 yards and five touchdowns in his freshman season and was second team All-ODAC, the only freshman on either the first or second team.  His sophomore season he had 780 yards and eight TDs, got even better as a junior with 1,072 yards and 15 TDs, and finished his senior year with 89 catches for 1,262 yards and 18 TDs and did all that in just 10 games per year.

Let’s get another ring!”
