While proud of what he’s accomplished so far, Smith said he’d like to believe he’s only got plenty more memories to make, and credits Ginn Sr. for that outlook on life. “Without him in a lot of situations, who knows where I would be in my life,” Smith said of Ginn Sr. “Everything that he does is for the city, it’s always for the kids and our youth. He is one of my greatest inspirations, and anytime he asks me for anything, if it fits, I’ll definitely do it. If it doesn’t, well, I’ll make it fit.”


The speaking event, sponsored by The Chevy Network and Foster Chevrolet, will include Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer and quarterback Cardale Jones. Other guests will include Ted Ginn Jr., another former Buckeye standout currently with the Carolina Panthers. A silent auction will begin the event at Kalahari and will be held from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. The speaking event will take place from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., where light refreshments will be served.

Troy Smith played quarterback at Ohio State, where he was the winner of the 2006 Heisman Trophy. He also won the Davey O’Brien and Walter Camp awards the same year. After winning the Heisman while leading Ohio State to the 2007 BCS National Championship game, Smith was drafted in the fifth round and spent four seasons in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, which included eight starts.
