Smith, Camden's 'tackling machine' headed to Newberry
CAMDENS TYREL SMITH SIGNED his National Letter of Intent to continue his academic and football pursuits at Newberry College while flanked by his parents, James Smith and Malissa Greenhow. Standing, from left, are Camden High School assistant coach Brian Kersey, CHS assistant coach Denny Beckley, CHS principal Dan Matthews and CHS assistant coach Casey Faulkenberry.
Coming into pre-season camp prior to his junior season at Camden High School, Tyrel Smith was a player the football staff thought could be a good player but one without a true position. Standing 6-foot-3 and then weighing in at 180 pounds, Bulldog head coach Jimmy Neal was looking to get Smith somewhere on the field. After having received some playing time at a defensive end post which was crowded to begin with, Smith was moved to linebacker in a move designed to add depth to that position.
