A one-year wonder at PCC, Smith smashed the Lancers' single-season rushing and scoring records while breaking Jackie Robinson's long-time school record for touchdowns in 2001. He set a national record for most all-purpose yards in a game with 515 (broke NFL player Jason Sehorn's mark) in scoring a PCC record six touchdowns against Cerritos College. In that same game, his 353 rushing yards in 34 carries broke a PCC and conference record for one contest. He also gained 317 yards (second-most in school history) v. Mt. San Antonio and had the No. 5 most yards game with 287 v. Riverside. Selected JC All-American First Team and league offensive MVP, he helped the Lancers win their only Mission Conference title with a 10-1 record. Smith was MVP of the 2001 South County Bowl championship win over Grossmont, rushing for 247 yards. He is the only player to eclipse 2,000 rushing yards in a season (2,049) and he scored an impressive 31 touchdowns in just 11 games. His 181 points surpassed the immortal Robinson's 131 points in 1938. Smith and PCC quarterback Nathan Chandler (#4 on list) made up the only All-American First Team backfield in JC Grid-Wire history. He went on to be an All-Pacific 10 Conference running back at Washington State. He later played on a World Bowl title team for NFL Europe's Amsterdam franchise.
