Smith Has Solid First Season in Canada

     If this year was a movie it would be, "Mr. Smith Goes To Saskatchewan." Early this year Smith decided to sign with the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders. Throughout the year he became a bigger threat at wide receiver for the Riders. Smith is even up for the TSN play of the year on an incredible catch he made against Edmonton. He even helped Saskatchewan reach the playoffs this season. Here is a look at some of the highlights of Smith's season.

     Smith is on the ballot for TSN's Play of the Year for 2012. He made an incredible catch against Edmonton on a pass that bounced off a foot, then off a defender and then into his hands for a huge gain. Arguably his best game of the season was against Edmonton as well. In a week 16 loss Smith ended up with 6 catches for 98 yards.

     Smith played an important role in the playoffs against Calgary. He made two clutch catches to move the chains for the Roughriders. He was an essential part of their scoring drives. He ended the day with 4 catches for 81 yards, including a 40-yard reception.

     Taj Smith ended the season third among the Riders' receivers. He had 47 catches for 690 yards and 2 touchdowns. He proved to all the people in Canada that he is a very solid football player and through covering him I can now spell Saskatchewan.
