Tevaun Smith Pictorial: Big Play at Kid’s Day Scrimmage

TevaunBigPlay4 - Version 2

Here are some shots I took of Hawkeye sophomore WR Tevaun Smith during his big gain reception during the Kid’s Day Scrimmage.  In this pictorial, you will see Tevaun’s skills on display.  In particular, this pictorial will highlight his speed, elusiveness, ball-handling and knowing what to do with it during the play.  While so much attention has been put on incoming JUCO transfer Damond Powell and rightly so, it’s no wonder Smith has found his place in the 2-deeps in the season opener against Northern Illinois next week.  Let’s hope all of these key attributes come to light when it counts – on GAMEDAY!  Go Hawks!
