Quit askin': DeVonta Smith is looking for his next big play, trying to move on from '2nd & 26'
One of the more iconic plays in recent memory of college football was Alabama WR DeVonta Smith’s catch on 2nd down and 26 against Georgia in the 2018 national championship.
Smith has moved on to become a Heisman Trophy contender this season, and made loads of highlight-reel catches and plays since then. But that hasn’t stopped people for continuing to ask Smith about it. He discussed the issue on Monday on “The Paul Finebaum Show.”
“I try to create another play,” he said. “Every time I see it, I try to look away from it, every time I hear it, I try to tune it out. Most definitely I just don’t like to see it or hear it because that’s all I hear all the time.”
Smith holds a four- and five-touchdown game which makes him the only receiver in SEC history with multiple career games totaling four or more receiving touchdowns. Earlier this season, Smith also set the SEC and Alabama career record for receiving touchdowns with 38, which passed the previous mark of 31 held by Amari Cooper (2012-14) and former Florida star Chris Doering.
