Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith has been chosen as one of the three nominees for the GMC 'Never Say Never Moment of the Week.' Smith was facing the death of his 19-year old brother earlier that day and despite permission from his coach to remain with his grieving family, choose instead to return to his team and turned in an emotionally-draining amazing performance in the Ravens 31-30 comeback victory over the New England Patriots.
Fans can go to NFL.com/GMC to cast their vote, with a chance to enter and win a trip to Super Bowl XLVII, perhaps to see Torrey and the Ravens hoist the Lombardi Trophy.
Here's what they said about Smith's performance:
Playing in pain, Ravens’ Smith has game of his life: Sunday morning started with the devastating news that his brother had died in a motorcycle accident. But Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, despite permission by his coach to sit out Sunday night’s game, wanted to play. In one of the NFL’s most inspirational individual performances, Smith caught six passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens’ come-from-behind victory over the New England Patriots.
