Seldom Used Reserve of the Week


Stop me if you’ve heard this name before: Chad Smith.  This guy is a special teams demon, having been awarded the Seldom Used Reserve of the Week multiple times this season.  However, this week he has company in the name Kyle Cote (#32).  They were both instrumental in stuffing South Carolina’s fake punt.  The TV announcers only mentioned Smith by name, but it’s clear from the video that Cote was an important part of the tackle, too (and he was credited in the official play by play).
