Robert Smith is banking his college football dreams on strong senior season. The rising offensive lineman will be trying on some new school colors for size was he becomes part of the Vardaman football programs. Smith attended Mississippi State's Big Dawg camp on Friday to show the Bulldog coaches just what he is capable of.

"I am from Starkville, but I am at Vardaman High School now," said Smith. "I am going to be playing nose tackle and some defensive tackle this fall.

"Camp went pretty good up here today. I enjoyed it a lot."

Smith reports that he received some positive reinforcement from Mississippi State defensive line coach David Turner.

"Coach Turner told me to keep on working hard like I am working," said Smith. "He said that if I just keep working hard that everything would go great for me during my senior year."

Smith is trying to jump start his recruitment that he feels is a little lost in the shuffle due to his relocation to Vardaman, Mississippi.

"I am just trying to make something happen this season," said Smith. "We are going to have a pretty good team this year.

"We have five talented seniors coming back and I am coming up there too.

"It's going to be a great season and I plan on having a great season for me."
