It's been an exciting week for University of Louisville senior defensive end Marcus Smith.
Smith helped the team beat Cincinnati and earn a bid into the Russell Athletic Bowl last Thursday night and is now getting honored.
On Wednesday, Smith was named American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year and was named a second-team All-American by USA Today newspaper.
Smith added two more honors on Thursday. He was named a second-team Walter Camp All-American and accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl next month in Mobile, Ala.
The Senior Bowl will be held on Jan. 25 and Smith is the first U of L player invited to participate in the all-star game since Billal Powell was selected in 2010.
Smith has 12.5 sacks on the season.
