    Vol freshman phenom Trey Smith ended 2017 with some more good news.

    Smith has already racked up several All-SEC and Freshman All-American honors since the 2017 season ended. And he’s able to add yet another accolade to his already large list of awards for his first year as a college football player.

    The Football Writers Association of America voted on their Freshman All-American team on Sunday, and Tennessee’s Trey Smith was one of the freshmen they elected to be on their team. The offensive lineman was one of four SEC players on the Freshman All-American team. He was joined by Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm, Georgia offensive lineman Andrew Thomas, and LSU defensive back Andraez Williams.

    Smith has already been named a freshman All-American by USA Today, a second team All-SEC player by both the AP and Coaches selections, and an All-SEC Freshman by the SEC as well.

    Smith started all 12 games for the Vols this season, playing primarily at guard for most of the season. Smith did start at tackle down the stretch, however, and he excelled at both positions.

    Tennessee’s football team as a whole had a pretty forgettable 2017 season. But Trey Smith was one of the few bright spots on the team and the season, and he will only continue to pile up the awards and accolades as his career continues.
