I'll tell you a few things I know for a fact about Tre Smith.
First, he is just getting started. He had been away from the game for a little while when he came up to join Hamilton, and he hasn't hit his stride yet. But he will.
Second, he's a team player in a big way. A solid guy. Gets excited about what he does, and brings that spark with him. He has a good time on the field, and likes to have fun, and from what I've seen on the forums Ticats fans are seeing that.
Other quick facts -- he was offered a contract with BC Lions in 2007 but didn't take it, even though it was reported on CBC that he did. (He finished his degree instead.) So this is his first time in Canada.
He was supposed to play in an arena football team in the United States, and it folded before the season started -- something about the main funder ran out of money.
When it folded, his agent hooked him up with Hamilton.
And he's gonna do some great things for Hamilton.
