Football: The pride of Taft High

There can't be anything cooler than having your photo placed on a giant billboard (above) across the street from the high school you attended.

That's what has happened to former Woodland Hills Taft standout Steve Smith, a receiver for the Philadephia Eagles.

He's one of the best athletes in Taft history, having played football and basketball before going on to USC. Across the street from Taft, you can't miss the giant sign of Smith and the product he's promoting.
