Rod Smith did not start his life out as an NFL superstar. In fact, his beginnings were very humble, as the child of a welfare family, living in the crime-riddled projects of Texarkana, where hope was scarce and few young men had the vision for any sort of future that stretched beyond jail or even death. During his childhood, Rod witnessed his family suffer through poverty, and he saw violence and helplessness all around him and he was even the victim of unjustified suspicion based on nothing more than his race and the neighborhood he came from.
In spite of these humble and difficult beginnings - in fact, because of them - Rod grew up with a desire to better himself so that he could then better the lives of his family. With the love and support of his immediate family, who clung to each other in even the most difficult times, and with a burning desire to achieve and free himself from the life most thought he was destined to live, he excelled in sports, earned degrees, and went on to an illustrious career in professional football and as a businessman earning a seven-figure salary and helping others do the same.
