Quarterback, Seattle Seahawks
Eugene Cyril “Geno” Smith III (born October 10, 1990) is an American football quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at West Virginia, leading the Mountaineers to multiple bowl games, breaking numerous passing records, and garnering multiple awards before getting drafted by the New York Jets in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
After two inconsistent seasons as the Jets’ starting quarterback, Smith eventually lost his starting position due to injuries in his final two years with the team. He then spent time as a backup for the New York Giants and Los Angeles Chargers before unexpectedly making a career resurgence as the Seattle Seahawks’ starting quarterback in 2022, earning his first Pro Bowl selection, having his first winning record and playoff berth as a starter, leading the league in completion percentage, and ultimately winning the Comeback Player of the Year award.Source
