The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / High School Football Spotlight: Mark Smith QB, CCPA

High School Football Spotlight: Mark Smith QB, CCPA

I have watched this young man play twice, once this season and once last. Both times he brought his team back late to post the win. Two years ago he threw the winning touchdown on the game’s last play. This season he came back into the game after being injured to lead his team to the win. The one thing this kid has is heart and a lot of it. I think he has a very good chance to play on Saturdays anywhere between D-2- N.A.I.A. He can throw the rock really well, with the mid-short range passes being his strong suit. He is A very dangerous runner with A big reason being he has the knack to know when to and when not to. If you want to know just how mature this young man is just read question number 8.


1- You guys are moving to the CMAC next season. What will be the biggest change for you and the team?

The biggest change for me and my team to move into the CMAC will be facing off against bigger schools and better competition.

2-How Special will it be getting to play at the newer West Side Side Stadium on A regular basis?

Playing at the new West Side Stadium on a regular basis will be significant, I say this because it is the closest stadium to our school & with us not having a home field, we usually have to travel and now we can just go right up the street.

3-Studying film is one of the best ways to improve your play. So how often do you watch game film?

We watch the film as a team once a week and as an individual, I watch film maybe 3 to 4 times a week.

4-What was it like going from A winless season to not only A winning one but also making the playoffs?

Going from a winless season to a winning season and making the playoffs is something that I will never forget. We worked every day from the start of the summer to the end of the season and we deserve it.

5-How big of A difference has Coach Jeremy Pflug and his staff made in your play and the team’s play?

Coach Jeremy Pflug and the rest of the coaching staff has made a huge difference in mine and the teams play by teaching us fundamentals that we didn’t even know of & pushing us as hard as they possibly can.

6- Playing for such A small school do you or your teammates try and get other friends to come out for the team? If yes. How do you go about it and has it helped?

Playing for a small school like CCPA we try to get all the boys in the school to come out and join us. We tell them they would be a great asset to the team and they could help us build something special here at CCPA.

7- What is the hardest thing about playing quarterback?

The hardest thing about playing quarterback is memorizing all of the plays and knowing what everyone is doing on every play.

8- What other sports if any do you play for C.C.P?

I did play basketball at CCPA but I decided to get a job & get in the weight room for football and try to put some weight.

9- Have you received any offers to play in College? Where?

I have not received any offers yet. I have only talked to college coaches.

10- It’s 4 and goal from the six with just enough time left on the clock for one more play. What play are you hoping the coaches call?

It is fourth and goal from the 6-yard line, I am hoping my coach calls Deuce Stack Strike Yankee.
