Preston Smith is big in Washington, D.C.
How big? Billboard big.
Thanks to a campaign from Mississippi State called #FromStateToSundays, billboards featuring former Bulldogs defensive end Preston Smith were seen throughout the District on Sunday. Smith is in his second year with the Washington Redskins, and the former second-round pick should gain a little more face recognition after this move.
The timing of the campaign was excellent. On Sunday, Smith had four tackles with two sacks and an interception as part of the Redskins’ 26-20 victory against the Minnesota Vikings at FedEx Field.
This is a great way for schools to provide a hat tip to their NFL talent, right?
Kudos to Mississippi State for the idea. Smith also deserves recognition for backing up the billboard commitment with his big-time play.
