Born in Lynwood, California on May 12, 1979, Steve Smith was a letterman in football and track and field. In football, he played tailback and defensive back, and was an All-Metro League selection and was an All-California Interscholastic Federation selection. In track and field, he set a handful of school records, was named as an All-City selection as a high-hurdler, and also excelled in the triple jump and 300m hurdles.
After completing two years at Santa Monica College, Smith transferred to the University of Utah, where he established himself as a standout wideout in the Mountain West Conference. While at the University of Utah, Smith set the record for yards per catch with a 20.6 average.
The Carolina Panthers chose Smith in the third round during the 2001 NFL Draft. During the 2002 NFL season, Smith earned a starting position as a wide receiver and continued to carry out his kickoff and punt return duties. Smith played a critical role for the Panther offense during their 2003 season, and further improved his statistics. He went on to catch 4 passes for 80 yards and a touchdown and returned a kickoff for 30 yards in the Panthers narrow 32-29 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVIII.
Steve has accomplished numerous awards and honors. His 404 postseason yards in the 2003 season were the most since Jerry Rice gained 409 yards in 1988. Smith earned the NFL's receiving "triple crown" in 2005, leading the league in receptions (103), yards (1,563) and touchdowns (12). He has also been invited to the Pro Bowl five times and All-Pro three times.
Smith is one of only three players in history to run back two punts for touchdowns and catch a touchdown pass in the same game. Smith also holds an NFL record for highest punt return average in a single game (51.0 yards). Smith led the NFL in receiving yards per game in the 2008-2009 NFL season. Smith led the Panthers in receiving yards in the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 seasons. During the 2007-2008 season Smith accumulated 1,421 yards and six touchdowns.
The Procter & Gamble Steve Smith Football ProCamp will be staffed by some of the area's top high school and college coaches.
