Georgia Tech Football Preseason: Orwin Smith Finally Healthy

Georgia Tech running back Orwin Smith suffered a toe injury early last season and battled through it for the rest of the year. Smith had surgery in January and missed spring practice but has declared himself 100 percent and ready for a big season for the Yellow Jackets.

"I feel like I'm good to go, 100 percent," said Smith, an A-back. "I don't feel any pain. ... [The injury] will always be there, but it's definitely easier to do some quickness and planting things."

Despite the injury, Smith put up a pretty good season in 2011 carrying the ball 61 times for 615 yards (10.1 avg) and 11 touchdowns. Smith set a school record with a 95-yard touchdown run against Kansas. His speed and big play ability figure to be a key part of Georgia Tech's offensive attack in 2012.
