HIs Twitter handle is @Jizzlesmith5. His nickname is Jay the Jet.
You’ll have to forgive us, but the title was something we couldn’t keep from writing. Obviously the young man is a fan of the D-O-Double-G, our man Snoop.
All of the light hearted banter aside, Jamarion Smith is one of the fastest kids in Kentucky in the prospect class of 2022. Smith has been laser timed in the 4.5’s and is projected to play WR/RB/ and DB for Spencer County this coming season, which will be his second of varsity football. Of course, Smith’s being lightening fast, and set to chart a course for stardom at the high school level, may be in his genes.
You may not recall, but over two years ago, in July of 2017, we wrote an article entitled The Spencer County Speed Demon. That article was about Jamarion’s older brother, Kadin Smith.
In that article, just to recap, we talked about Kadin’s being a Purdue Boilermaker commitment. Kadin was a 3X High School State Champion in 100, 200, and 400 meters. Kadin had run the 100 meters in 11.04 seconds and we guessed his 40-yard dash time at around 4.52-seconds.
At the time we wrote Kadin’s feature, Kadin was set to embark on his senior year. Over the course of his sophomore year, Kadin averaged 14.1 yards per carry, gained 1,254 yards from scrimmage, and scored 21 TDs, 15 of which were scored rushing, three receiving, two scoop and scores, and a pick-six. As a junior, Kadin tallied 80 tackles and three picks to go along with his 1,304 yards rushing and 10 yards per carry average.
Why did we go down that lane? This feature is supposed to be about Jamarion, not Kadin. Well, we believe Jamarion is set to sail a similar path.
Jay the Jet may have only had a single carry as a freshman in 2018, but he took that sucker 61-yards for a score. He made the most of that opportunity. This year presents an altogether different opportunity. It’s an opportunity to take the next step from promise to stardom.
Spencer County was 4-6 in 2018 playing Class 4A football. For the Bears to improve on that number, they will need Jay the Jet to compile a similar sophomore type year as the Spencer County Speed Demon did years before him.
Jamarion has all the tools to do just that. He certainly has the blood-lines. Be on the look out for Smith to take flight in 2019 and drop it like it’s hot, and that is for-rizzle, my-jizzle!
