The Amite, La. native won the Fred Biletnikoff Award for the outstanding receiver in college football. He also won the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and Maxwell Award.

Smith became the first wide receiver to win the Heisman Trophy since Michigan’s Desmond Howard in 1991 and the first non-quarterback winner since former Alabama running back Derrick Henry in 2015.
