Rod Smith: A Touch of class
I have a few sports heroes. Buck O'Neil, the great player of the Negro Leagues. Pete Maravich, Lance Armstrong. Hank Aaron. You can add to that list Rod Smith. His attitude, work ethic, and his humility are all qualities I admire. The Broncos will miss his leadership and his example of what it means to be a professional in the NFL. I'll miss him as a shining example of a life well lived.
