As a Notre Dame graduate I am happy to see Jaylon Smith out on the field representing the University with class and talent. As an Orthopedic Surgeon who takes care of New Mexico State University- I find it remarkable that he is performing at such a high level. I had written an article in May 2016
that talked about Jaylon and his injury. 20 months after his terrible knee injury, Jaylon has silenced his critics and returned to the football field. He will only get better!!!! His positive attitude and work ethic should serve as an inspiration to all athletes with knee injuries.
