Student Profile; Dayten Smoot

Hadlie Brady and Mia Taggart

For this year’s first Student Spotlight we have decided to focus on our boys’ fall sports. First up for football we have chosen to interview player Dayten Smoot, our starting kicker.

  1. What has been your favorite part about being on the Washburn Rural football team?
  • “The culture and brotherhood you make. Its overall a fun experience.”
  1. Who do you think will be your team’s biggest obstacle this year?
  • “Carrying a chip on your shoulder and not letting last year’s bad performance carry over.”
  1. How would you describe the whole team’s motivation for 2022’s season? 
  • “Very high motivation and a lot of energy.”
  1. Looking back on your past football seasons, what has been one of your favorite memories from school football?
  • “The seaman game last year. It was very electric and back and forth. A good football game in the end.”
  1. Do you have any further plans for your career in football? 
  • “Go to college and play football next year. I don’t know where.”

After hearing from our players it looks like we will be having a good season overall. Be sure to attend the games and cheer our student athletes on!
