Jaylon Smith visits Odessa for bowling tournament

Local Sports

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith was in the Basin Sunday afternoon for a bowling tournament benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs.

Local coaches and teams also played in the tournament. Signed jerseys, footballs and other memorabilia were raffled off following the tournament, with 20 percent of the event proceeds benefiting the Club.

Smith said he was happy to give back, as the Club holds a special place in his heart. He said he was part of the Boys and Girls Clubs in his hometown growing up.

Participants were also rewarded for their bowling skills. Smith actually won first place for highest score.

With training camp taking place in the next few weeks, Smith also talked about the upcoming season with the Cowboys.

The linebacker was a major force on defense for Dallas last season, and said the team really found its identity toward the end of the year.

“Last year we kind of waited until we were 3 and 5 to decide what we were going to be. And this year it’s about coming out first game immediately and dominating so I’m looking forward to it,” Smith said.
