Former Charter Oak linebacker Keith Smith’s huge freshman season at San Jose St. didn’t go unnoticed.

Smith, after making 116 tackles this season, earned Football Writers Association Freshman All-American honors. Smith was also named the WAC’s Freshman Player of the Year and second-team All-WAC overall.

At Charter Oak, Smith helped the Chargers win CIF championships in 2009 and ’10. The Chargers didn’t allow a point in Miramonte League play Smith’s senior season.

Aram’s take: Pretty impressive considering the ridiculously tough schedule that SJ St. played this year. More to come from Smith, for sure.

    Great job Keith.

    This kid always seemed a couple years more physically advanced that others in his same grade. No surprise though, really if you had ever met his Dad, (who played a little ball hisownself if I’m not mistaken).

    Congratulations.
