While his speech wasn’t full of energy, he did share an important message about hard work and never giving up.

“To all the young kids out there that’s not the biggest, not the strongest, just keep pushing…no job is too big. If you put your mind to it, you can do it. Just keep believing in God and you’ll get to where you want to be,” Smith told the audience.

You can watch his full speech below.

I think we can all agree that Smith’s message is one that athletes and people everywhere should hear. He’s not a physical freak of nature, but he still dominates on the field.

He doesn’t jump off the paper at you, but he has no problem torching defenses. Hard work and commitment goes a long way.
