The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / DeVonta Smith talks about Wawa addiction, gaining strength, pace

DeVonta Smith talks about Wawa addiction, gaining strength, pace

Publish Date: 08/27/2022
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Despite his efforts to bulk up this offseason, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith has revealed his addiction to Wawa sandwiches.

“You know what’s crazy? I got a Wawa addiction. Honestly,” Smith said in a statement on Thursday. “Wawa sandwiches. I don’t know. I literally eat one every day for some reason.”

Smith is originally from Amite City, Louisiana, but later relocated to Philadelphia upon joining the Eagles in early June last year. Ever since then, he has discovered a variety of food, including Wawa’s honey-smoked turkey, which has become one of his favorites.

Smith has sought to improve his diet as he enters Year 2 of his NFL career, despite his daily Wawa addiction.

According to the Phillies head coach Nick Sirianni, Smith has gained weight recently, and is therefore “bigger, stronger, and faster.”

“He’s gotten bigger, he’s gotten stronger, he feels like he’s running faster out there,” Sirianni said. “And then just everything with his game has gotten better because that’s just the way DeVonta works.

Smith is listed as 170 pounds, indicating that he’s gained some weight this summer. On the contrary, he is the Phillies’ lightest position player.

Smith, on the other hand, has become more “explosive” in everything he’s done recently, as a result of his larger build.

“I feel more explosive in everything I’m doing,” Smith said. “I look in the mirror, and I feel like I look a little built, a little bigger.”

Smith had previously returned to practice after an extended hiatus, after missing several days of training camp earlier this summer due to a groin ailment.

During his absence from the team, he made a statement about how he maintained his mind in the game, saying, “You’re still seeing everything, you’re still doing everything with the team. You’re out, but you’re not out.”

“You still gotta be engaged. When you come back, things are going to be faster because you haven’t been out there in so long.”

Smith has been a key part of the team’s offense since his comeback, and he also put up a strong showing against the Dolphins on Wednesday, coming back for an underthrown pass.

“It works hand in hand,” he said. “When I’m covered, Jalen throws a great ball and it makes it seem like I’m open. Even when it’s a bad pass or not, I gotta bail him out the same way he bailed me out.”
