Ed Smith was honored along with his brother Irv at Mt. Holly Pro Day 1999

Born June 5, 1969, Ed was a natural athlete playing both baseball and football at Pemberton High School.  On the football field he was a tight end and punter.Chicago White Sox

Ed was drafted by the Chicago White Sox right out of high school as a power-hitting third baseman.  He eventually ended up with the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system.  Ed played nine seasons of minor league baseball.

He then decided to try his hand in professional football.  Ed  went overseas with the NFL-Europe where he played tight end for the Frankfort (Germany) Galazy.  Washington RedskinsFrom there Smith was signed as a free agent by the Rams in 1996.  He was released at the end of the Rams' training camp, but was signed to the Redskins' practice squad in October where he remained for the rest of the season.  

It was that same season that Ed's dream to become a pro athlete came true.  He was taken off of the practice squad and activated.  His first NFL game was against his brother's team, the New Orleans Saints.

XFL Birmingham BoltsIn a strange quirk of fate, in 1999 Ed and his brother Irv were vying for the same tight end position with the Cleveland Browns.

Today Ed is a tight end for the Birmingham Bolts of the XFL.
