His nickname is Shaq - and it was given to him at age 12. On the football field, Smith exhibits a rare combination of speed and athleticism that reminds scouts of Jadeveon Clowney and Da'Shawn Hand. Smith's time in the 40-yard dash has been listed anywhere from 4.5 to 4.7 seconds. The defensive lineman has been rated as one of the top prospects for the 2016 recruiting class.

"What we do [is] a humble act of remembrance that takes very little courage compared to the bravery of those heroic lads during the invasion of Normandy," Gray said in an email from France.
