Bethel football legend Ed Smith, Orlando, Fla., has been nominated for induction into the National Football Foundation (NFF) and College Football Hall of Fame for 2021.

Smith, a 1987 Bethel graduate originally from De Leon Springs, Fla., is considered one of the greatest student-athletes ever to put on the helmet and shoulder pads as a Thresher.

He played wide receiver 1983-86 and was part of a squad that turned in an overall record of 29-8 over four seasons.
