Mater Dei linebacker Jed Smith was the Orange County football defensive player of the year for the 2015 season.
That likely will be the last football award of any type he will receive.
Smith’s football days almost certainly are over, today’s national letter of intent signing day proved – Smith signed with Army for wrestling.
He has been ranked No. 1 in Orange County wrestling at 182 pounds. Smith, 5-foot-9, medaled in the CIF State Meet last year.
Is he tempted to try out for the football team at West Point?
“No,” said Smith on Wednesday at Mater Dei’s letter of intent signing event at the school’s Meruelo Events Center. “I’m just going to focus on wrestling.”
West Point long has been a goal for Smith.
“I’m extremely excited,” he said. “This has been a dream of mince since fourth grade. I’ve always thought it would be right place for me.”
