Robert Smith, Guilford, So., Linebacker
Smith, a sophomore from Winston-Salem,
N.C., continued his impressive campaign in Guilford's
20-7 ODAC win at Shenandoah University with 13 tackles against the
Hornets. The sophomore linebacker keyed a Quakers' defensive effort
that limited host SU to 206 total offensive yards and a single
fourth-quarter touchdown. Smith had four solo stops and nine
assists to extend his streak of games with 10 or more takedowns to
six. He had two stops behind the line, including a fourth-quarter
sack. Smith entered the game as the ODAC's tackles leader and
maintained those advantages following the contest as he leads the
ODAC with 64 total stops, 12.8 tackles per game and 11 TFLs.
His 3.5 sacks are fifth in the league. In last week's
national rankings released by the NCAA, Smith was among those
listed in tackles for loss (11th) and tackles (14th) per game.
