About Tre'Quan Smith

Tre'Quan Smith was born (January 7th, 1996) and raised in Delray Beach, Florida. Smith attended Village Academy from K-12. He committed to the University of Central Florida (UCF)  where he played college football until 2017. Smith is currently a wide receiver for the Detroit Lions. 

Fun Fact: Tre'Quan first played football his freshman year of high school, but decided to quit after only playing in his 4th game of the season. That game ended up being his best game (4 receptions for 52 yards and 2 interceptions). At the time, Smith was more passionate about basketball. But his coaches and mentors were so impressed by his skills on the football field; they chased him down and encouraged him to give football another try.
