The Laurier Golden Hawks soar into Saturday’s Yates Cup thanks in part to a strong performance from Robbie Smith who has been named OUA Special Teams Player of the Week.

Smith, a second-year kin/phys. ed. student-athlete, had two special team’s tackles in Laurier’s 21-19 victory over the McMaster Marauders.

The Brampton, Ont. native played a key role in limiting McMaster to 27 punt return yards on 8 attempts and 25 kickoff return yards on 2 attempts.

The 6’2″, 230 lbs Smith finished the game with 3.5 total tackles.

Smith will look to have another strong game on special teams Saturday in the 109th Yates Cup against the Western Mustangs.
