Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith talks about respect, giving back

Posted: Updated:

Visiting for a football camp, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith talked about his experience playing in the NFL and giving back, as well as passing down knowledge and wisdom to a new generation.

KUAM Sports: How has your stay been here on island and what do you think about the weather and the island in general.

Jaylon Smith: Wonderful man the food is delicious and the view is incredible. We're standing here at the Two Lovers Point. It's incredible so I'm happy to be here and it's going to be a great time.

KUAM Sports: Let's talk about jersey swaps. Any players that come to mind after the game when you guys switch jerseys with.

Smith: Yeah that's the unique thing about being a National Football player and being part of the family that we have. You get a unique opportunity after each game to trade an authentic jersey. Something that no one else will ever own and have so it's a privilege and it's a right and it cost a lot of money. I've gotten some legendary jerseys. Odell Beckham, Bobby Wagner, Adrian Peterson and the list goes on and on. I've gotten a lot but it's about showing respect and if a guy comes up to you after a game and after you've had a heck of a game and they want to trade jerseys with you, it's a respect.

KUAM Sports: Any Hall of Famers or old school players that you have been able to sit down with and chop it up with and pick their brains on the defensive side in your position at linebacker.

Smith: Yeah I have gotten the chance to talk to Derrick Brooks a lot. He is a guy that has been a mentor of mine and a Hall of Fame first ballot linebacker, Super Bowl champion. So I've gotten the chance to learn a lot from him.

KUAM Sports: Upcoming 2019 season any particular goals you have set for yourself to follow up that 2018 season.

Smith: The sky is the limit and the ultimate goal is a championship. But for me it's just about being elite, every single play.
