Hopefully no one needs to get a hold of DeVonta Smith before the Super Bowl. The Eagles wide receiver is staying under the radar until the time comes to show out on the field.
Smith is trying to stay clear of any distractions surrounding the Super Bowl and is boycotting his phone, social media, and television.
Smith told Bo Wulf of The Athletic that he was in “complete darkness.” He’s had his fair share of light, setting a single-season franchise record for a receiver with 95 catches. Smith also finished with 1,196 yards and seven touchdowns.
This really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as Smith is considered to be a private person. He says that he is “real cautious” of who he is around. To say DeVonta Smith is dedicated is an understatement. His teammates would agree, as he is the one who shows up at 5:30 a.m. to work through his circuit of tennis ball drills.
This will be DeVonta Smith’s first Super Bowl, but he is prepared from his experiences at Alabama. He caught the game-winning touchdown in overtime during the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in 2018.
Arguably one of the greatest plays in Alabama history happened three years ago today. Tua Tagovailoa finds DeVonta Smith for the game-winning touchdown in the CFP National Championship against Georgia. 2nd and 26. Magical. pic.twitter.com/rhZwb39MRd

We will see is the “darkness” benefits Smith in the upcoming Super Bowl.
