Several faculty members at Stafford High School wore Torrey Smith jerseys to school on Friday, Jan. 13, to show their support for Stafford alumnus Torrey Smith.
Smith was an outstanding quarterback for the varsity team while he was at SHS. He was elected homecoming king his senior year.
Smith went on to sign a football scholarship with the University of Maryland where he was an outstanding wide receiver breaking Maryland’s record in yards. Smith was drafted in the second round by the Ravens in last year’s NFL draft.
Smith was named the NFL player of the week when his first three touches on the ball resulted in three catches for touchdowns. Smith has proven a valuable players for the Ravens. This weekend he plays in his first NFL/AFL playoff game.
The faculty wore his shirts with pride. Several faculty members were not available for the photo but they are supporting Smith’s efforts this weekend.
