Eagles Buzz: Hall of Fame WR has high praise for DeVonta Smith
Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith held his second-annual celebrity softball game over the weekend, pitting talented rosters of current and former stars against each other.
Smith’s team came out on top, earning a 14-5 victory over Jahan Dotson’s club, thanks largely to Terrell Owens’ two-run homer that earned him MVP honors.
Owens, an Alabama native who was in attendance for the CFB National Championship in 2018, offered high praise for DeVonta Smith’s game:
“That right there, that was my first time seeing him ball out,” Owens said of Smith’s game-winning touchdown. “I’ve admired this guy’s game for so long. He’s been excelling ever since. He’s obviously doing really great things in Philly, where the expectations are high — his game speaks for itself.” — The Philadelphia Inquirer
Smitty is coming off a productive season for the Eagles, finishing the year with 95 receptions for 1,196 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
Owens is no stranger to Philadelphia himself, having spent two seasons of his Hall of Fame career with the Eagles, leading them to a Super Bowl appearance in 2004.
