After prominent Oakcrest alumnus athlete was given the "All-Middle Atlantic Conference" honors last Tuesday, he confidently juggles between the best athlete incentives to prepare him for the next chapter in his college life- the junior phase.

Bolstered by the recent big-time athlete titles "MAC Freedom Division Defensive Player" and "MAC Freedom and Eastern College Athletic Conference South all-star team" leader this year, Danny Smith's future is yet to take its hold in the Delaware Valley University, the Atlantic City reported.

Ever since in high school, Smith had been a leading figure that has brought not a few recognitions and fame in Oakcrest.

All these recognitions opt to advance scholarship benefits for the selected awardee.

But in the case of Smith- being the first recipient in many years, a detailed discussion on pioneering standards may have to be considered by the selecting board.

What remains clear in these recognitions is the GPA bracket of 3.2 or higher performance rank by the students.

Quite obviously, Smith started in college being a lacrosse team standout in Delaware Valley University.

Also a member of the Aggie Football Team, it proved easiest for him lead teams and eventually set a record with 7 caused turnovers against the competing Immaculata last 2015, the Delval reported.  

He was still a freshman then. The following seasons catapulted Smith's athletic career to an even bigger fame.

Consequently, he continued batting and bagging prizes as a MAC Freedom Defender and Goalie for a straight week.

Considering that all these achievements happened in just an occasion, a lot of his co-athletes and coaches instantly regarded him as super-athlete then, the Delval again reported.

Eventually, this has not changed in the year that followed but even elevated with this year's first-in-history all-academic honor for Smith, GoMacSports reported.  

Having to relive the events that transpired in this year's latest performance, the MAC team stands ever proud to reveal the captivating moment when Smith caused 7 turnovers against Gwynedd Mercy.

Today, the Delaware Valley University athletes division finally hands its on-paper honor roll and a possible contract for the honorees. Meanwhile, Smith is nothing but delighted to reap the fruits of his labor, the Atlantic City again reported.
