"It definitely molded me a lot," said Smithson, 22. "Growing up, you just see that a lot of people are not fortunate. At the time, I didn't know because that was all I had. So I didn't really complain. My parents didn't really have money to put nice shoes or clothes on me, but I didn't really complain because that was all I had and that was all I was used to. Now when I go back to Baltimore and I see kids that grew up just like me playing youth football, I just want to give back as much as I can, and that's wherever I'm at."
