NFL star Roquan Smith has never forgotten where he came from.
This weekend, the former UGA linebacker partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Macon to feed around 65 families in his hometown of Montezuma, Ga., per 13wmaz.com.
Smith couldn’t be there because he had to “work,” helping the NFL’s Chicago Bears beat the New York Giants 19-14 on Sunday. But the hometown hero send a video which was played:
“The Boys & Girls cCub means a lot, and I can’t express my gratitude over the years for all the support I’ve received, so thank you guys and wish I was able to be there,” Smith said in the video.
Smith, 22, was the first UGA player to win the Butkus Award as the nation’s top overall linebacker in 2017. He left the Bulldogs after his junior season, and he was the eighth player selected in the NFL Draft.
