More Info
Anthony B. Smith was born on September 20, 1983 in Hubbard, Ohio. Anthony Smith attended Hubbard High School where he was active in several sports including basketball, baseball, football and track. His true talent for football became apparent early on. Anthony Smith wore the number 3 jersey for Hubbard High School and saw game time as both a star defensive back and a standout running-back. With his two way talent, speed and size it was no surprise that Anthony Smith began to rake in the awards. His last two years of high school he earned All-Midwest Region titles, All-Trumbull County awards and The Herald 22 award.

After high school he went to Syracuse University where he was recruited to play running back but saw game time on the special teams. In his second season at Syracuse, Anthony Smith was moved to starting safety and became a leader on the team. He pulled down 106 tackles and forced multiple fumbles with recoveries. During the 2004 season Anthony Smith’s skills continued to develop, after starting every game and posting impressive numbers he was named to the All-Big-East team at the end of the season. After the 2005 season, Anthony Smith ended his football career at Syracuse playing in 46 games and starting 35 of them, he also posted 14 interceptions, 293 tackles and was named the 3rd best defensive back in the Syracuse football program.

With a shinning college record, Anthony Smith entered the 2006 NFL draft and was selected in the third round by the Pittsburgh Steelers. In his Rookie 2006 season, Anthony Smith wasted no time creating a name for himself in the NFL. He played in 16 games starting the last 4 after the starting safety Ryan Clark was injured. Anthony Smith’s tackles were vicious and his playing style was fast-paced and intense. During the 2007 season Anthony Smith and Ryan Clark battled for the starting safety position, originally it was Clark’s but after an injury sidelined him, Anthony Smith took over once again. However, after a game against the Patriots where Anthony Smith guaranteed a win and then let several important plays go through, the safety was benched and did not see very much more playing time.

In the 2009 pre-season the Pittsburgh Steelers did not offer Anthony Smith a spot back on the roster as a restricted free agent and so he left the team. The Green Bay Packers signed Anthony Smith on March 9, 2009. Green Bay Packers fans can look forward to this powerhouse forward going all out for the Green Bay Packers this season.
